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.
