How a DUI Impacts Your Professional License
A unique set of consequences threatens state-licensed professionals who are convicted of a DUI. In California, the state will prosecute you more aggressively for other convictions, such as fraud, practicing your medical care while under the influence of alcohol, and crimes that cause physical harm. However, the state board does also take your DUI seriously.
If you are sentenced to jail time, community service, or drug and alcohol counseling, you may not be able to perform your work anymore. This can lead to problems in the future for continued employment, license renewals, and inquiries from the state licensing board.
Special circumstances that can aggravate your DUI consequences include:
- Work-related drug or alcohol operations
- Injury caused to another person
- Repeat DUI offenses
- Higher levels of BAC
- The presence of a child in the car while you were allegedly driving intoxicated
