(a) The department, after notice and hearing, on an interim basis, may refuse to issue
or may suspend a license issued under this chapter when the applicant or licensee,
or a business representative if the applicant or licensee is a business, has been
convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude which is substantially related to the
qualifications, functions, or duties of the licensed activity, if an appeal of the
conviction is pending or the conviction has otherwise not become final. A conviction after a plea of nolo contendere is a conviction within the meaning
of this section.
(b) When a conviction, upon which an interim refusal to issue or suspension under
subdivision (a) is based, is affirmed on appeal or otherwise becomes final, the refusal
to issue or suspension shall automatically take effect as a denial or revocation,
as the case may be, of the license. If the interim refusal to issue or suspension was stayed under probationary terms
and conditions, the subsequent automatic denial or revocation shall also be stayed
under the same terms and conditions for a term not to exceed the original term of
probation for the interim refusal or suspension.
(c) If a conviction, upon which an interim refusal to issue or suspension under subdivision
(a) is based, is reversed on appeal, the refusal or suspension shall be set aside
immediately by the department.
