When criminal charges are filed, you may be fortunate enough to defend your innocence effectively. However, being found not guilty in a criminal trial does not affect whether or not the LLR will take disciplinary action against you. You could be found not guilty and still lose your professional license, if you don’t work with a qualified attorney.
Possible Disciplinary Actions of the LLR
The possible disciplinary actions of the LLR include the suspension or revocation of your professional license, probation, heavy fines, and/or public reprimand. All of these can be devastating to your reputation, your career, and your future.
