A charge of violent crime could lead to lost teaching license

Some teachers in the region have lost their teaching licenses, as recently reported in the news. Thirteen New Jersey teachers had teaching licenses either suspended or revoked in 2018 for charges related to a violent crime and other violations. Not only can a criminal charge result in legal penalties, but it can result in long-term career problems, as these teachers are learning. 

One female teacher has had her licenses revoked after she was convicted of killing her husband. She is currently serving a six-year sentence for the crime in the state for the manslaughter charge. Another teacher was charged for felony drunken driving and resisting arrest. 

One charge of violent crime that occurred in the school happened when a male teacher allegedly had a physical altercation with a student after being hit with an object. In retaliation, the teacher allegedly put his hands on the student and pushed him out the door. Because of the charges of inappropriate conduct, the teacher's license was suspended for 18 months. The other teachers were charged with a variety of other crimes, including theft, threats and inappropriate behavior with children.

A violent crime almost always comes with severe penalties such as jail time and fines. As the news story reveals, it can also come with professional losses. When charged with a crime, most New Jersey residents wish to minimize the negative effects of the charges on their lifestyle. A criminal defense attorney could be a useful tool for a person looking to build a strong defense for the case.
