For people employed in certain professions that require professional licenses, an arrest for an alleged criminal offense creates two major problems. Not only must the alleged offender respond to the criminal charges, but he or she will generally have to deal with any potential disciplinary measure relating to his or her professional license.
A guilty plea, even to reduced charges, can still jeopardize a person's professional license. Any licensed professional who is charged with a criminal offense in Florida should be absolutely certain to retain legal counsel for help ensuring that he or she achieves the case resolution that does the least amount of possible damage to his or her career.
