Consequences of a criminal conviction on your license
If you’re convicted of a crime, this could result in professional discipline. In New York, there are two types of crimes: misdemeanors and felonies.
If you’re convicted of either one, you will be subject to disciplinary actions. Conviction means you plead guilty to a crime, or are found guilty by a jury.
If you’re charged, the best outcome is to avoid a conviction. In many cases, it means going to trial and getting acquitted. It’s important – if you decide a plea agreement is your only option – to hire a lawyer who has negotiation experience. Getting a plea deal that minimizes your exposure to discipline is no easy task.
If you’re charged with a felony – and get convicted – it can mean a stark future. A felony conviction will result in harsher discipline by the state than a misdemeanor conviction.
If you’re accused of medicaid fraud, the conviction can result in your removal as a medicaid provider. It means you’ll never be able to provide any service – for which medicaid pays.
One way to mitigate damages is to negotiate a settlement with your prosecution.
