The California Architects Board is responsible for the discipline of architects.  Gov. Code § 5553 provides for the denial of a license for any grounds that would support the suspension or revocation of a license.  Gov. Code §5577 provides that:

“The conviction of a crime substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of an architect by the holder of a license constitutes a ground for disciplinary action. The record of conviction, or a certified copy thereof certified by the clerk of the court or by the judge in whose court the conviction is obtained, is conclusive evidence of the conviction.”

“A plea or verdict of guilty or a conviction following a plea of nolo contendere is deemed to be a conviction within the meaning of this section. The board may order the license suspended or revoked, or may decline to issue a license, when the time for appeal has elapsed, the judgment of conviction has been affirmed on appeal, or an order granting probation is made suspending the imposition of sentence, irrespective of a subsequent order under the provisions of Section 1203.4 of the Penal Code allowing the person to withdraw his or her plea of guilty and to enter a plea of not guilty, or setting aside the verdict of guilty, or dismissing the accusation, information, or indictment.”

 

  • 5590 of the Gov. Code requires the clerk of the Court to notify the board within 10 days of a conviction of a crime unless the judge who presided makes a finding that the conviction does not related to the defendant’s professional competency or integrity.
