Doctor Discloses DUI -- No Action by Medical Board of California
Our client is a medical doctor who was convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol in California. California physicians are required to report misdemeanor criminal convictions within 30 days. (See Business and Professions Code section 802.1.) We prepared a report letter disclosing the conviction and explaining the circumstances. Fortunately, the doctor's DUI was a first time offense and his or her blood alcohol level was close to the legal limit. The Medical Board of California promplty decided to closed its investigation without taking any action against the physician's license.
