Unlicensed Practice of a Profession
It seems fairly simple. If you are not a physician, dentist, lawyer or even a masseuse, you can't practice that profession if you do not have a license to do so. In fact, it is an "E" felony punishable by up to four years in state prison even for first time offenders who violate New York Education Law section 6512.
What complicates this crime is if you are accused of practicing a profession such as a physician or a dentist and one of your patients are injured, you may face additional crimes of felony Reckless Endangerment or even felony Assault. These crimes are at least "D" felonies punishable by up to seven years in state prison. Likewise, in the event you are accused of practicing as an attorney or lawyer, you may also face the felony Grand Larceny. In the realm of unlicensed massages, these crimes are often prosecuted in association with the offenses relating to Prostitution.
Whatever the factors, if you have been arrested for violating New York Education Law section 6512, contact one of the New York criminal defense attorneys and former Manhattan prosecutors at Crotty Saland PC so a plan can not only be constructed, but implemented to protect your rights, liberty and integrity.
