DUI charges and State Licensing Boards.  One of the key factors for many state licensing boards is whether or not the crime that you have been convicted of is a crime of moral turpitude. A crime of moral turpitude is one which is depraved and violates the social duties that individuals are believed to owe to society. For instance, many state licensing boards are more concerned with fraud or theft crimes than with a DUI case. The other concern for most licensing boards is the potential for an underlying addiction problem. No matter what charges you are facing, a Placer County DUI lawyer can help.
