Teacher Offenses / Licensure Issues

Teacher Defense in Criminal Cases and Disciplinary Proceedings in Florida

Any time a teacher is charged with a crime — from drunk driving to drug possession — they are required to notify their school and the state Department of Education. In addition to possibly facing criminal charges, you may also face an administrative hearing or disciplinary proceedings.
