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.
A professional career that took years to build can be erased in an instant if criminal charges or accusations of ethical violations result in the suspension or revocation of your teachers' license.
Prompt and effective intervention by an experienced attorney can be critical to preserving your professional credentials and retaining your license.
