It’s completely normal to be worried about losing your professional license in the event of a criminal conviction. If you’re worried about potentially losing your professional license, first consider whether or not your offense is considered a felony or a misdemeanor.
Fortunately, the typical misdemeanor offense is probably not going to affect the validity of your professional license. The loss of your license will depend mostly on the degree of severity of the crime but also the nature of your license. Your industry standards will vary from industry to industry. Medical professionals may run the risk of losing their licenses for non-violent misdemeanor offenses more frequently compared to other types of license holders.”
When handling criminal proceedings, two factors dictate whether or not your license will be revoked. There are both state and federal regulations that affect whether someone can lose a professional license, but a concurrent administrative proceeding factors into the decision for an individual to lose or keep a professional license. Review the professional and personal conduct standards associated with your particular license to have a better idea of whether or not you are at risk of losing your license.
