Can an Arrest or Conviction Threaten a Kentucky Teaching License?

In short, yes. 

The state’s EPSB can revoke a license and certificate if a teacher:

  • Fails to adhere to its code of ethics. 
  • Is convicted of a crime. 
  • Engages in or attempts to engage in any sexual activity with a student or minor
  • Is under the influence of alcohol or drugs while teaching or working

While anyone can report an educator to the board, these reports are nothing but allegations until the EPSB hears the case and decides its verdict. If you have been reported to the ESPB, we understand you are likely going through a stressful time. The EPSB’s decision could have enormous implications for your career. However, it is important to remember you are innocent until proven guilty, and you do not have to handle your case alone. An attorney can counsel and advocate for you, highlighting your character and fitness and defending your actions. 

Education Law for Parents

It is not uncommon for children to get in trouble at school. However, sometimes bad behaviors lead to criminal charges and other serious consequences. Missing class too often and defacing property are among the actions that can require children to participate in juvenile courts. 

In more severe instances, children in middle school, high school, and college face accusations of sexual misconduct or harassment as outlined in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. These accusations could lead to legal consequences that affect a child’s future. 

In either of the cases above, it is beneficial for parents to enlist the help of an attorney. At Landon Law, we have been a lifeline for numerous minors and young adults who have found themselves in difficult situations. We have experience representing cases involving juvenile crimes and college crimes. Our team not only works to defend clients but also can connect them with behavioral or mental health resources to overcome challenges. 

Legal Representation in IDEA Cases 

The IDEA has established a legal framework to help all children receive a quality education. Still, schools often fail to make appropriate accommodations for children with disabilities. Should this have happened to your child, you can file a special education complaint asking the Kentucky Department of Education investigate and mediate the situation. 

Filing a claim can be difficult, especially for parents juggling day-to-day responsibilities. This is where a lawyer, like our Lexington education law attorneys, is helpful. They can guide you through the process and fight to rectify the issues that have compromised your child’s education.

    "I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me."
    Couldn’t be more pleased with Landon Law. I specifically worked with John Landon for two individual cases. Both got resolved without a hassle. John was attentive and very personable. Took time out of his personal life to speak with me multiple times via phone call or email. I can strongly say that by the end of your time with him, you’ll consider him a friend as well as an attorney. Never worked with a more personable and respectful firm. I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me. Will highly recommend them to any of my friends in the future in need of legal help. Thank you John, and thank you Landon Law!

    "I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you."
    They are the best..their fees are pretty fair and reasonable. Cheaper than any other lawyer I called. I worked with Charles Landon. Every time I had a question, concern or feeling hopeless, my text or phone call was always returned quickly. The outcome of my case was way more than I expected in my favor. He made sure that I never felt alone, that we were in it together. The confidence he had of himself reassured me that I was in good hands. He wasn’t judgemental or arrogant like most other lawyers. Just down to earth, he doesn’t stop fighting for your best interest. I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you.

    "Landon Law IS the best choice!"
    Soooo lemme just start with how I got charged with wanton endangerment class A felony and Charles Landon got the E N T I R E thing DISMISSED!! Do y’all hear me!!?? DISMISSED!! He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a few sadly /: But with Charles I would highly highly hiiiiiiighly recommend his services. Not only did he get the absolute best outcome for me, it was very impressive how obviously intelligent, professional, and intuitive he was yet super chill and down to earth at the same time. Also, he always kept in touched by updating me with the progress of my cases and never skipped a beat when answering my calls/texts. Sometimes I would even call him when I was super anxious because I was overthinking and nervous and he would gently lay out the facts & our game plan for me again and remind me not to stress to much which helped soOooOo much. He took my feelings into consideration and truly made me feel important and heard. I could literally go on and on about how amazing of an attorney he is. But to make it simple, Landon Law IS the best choice!!
    Forever grateful for him :))

    "Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you."
    I had Charles Landon with a case that had been going on 2 years. He answered every phone call, question and always made sure I was informed and had the best defense possible. When my case started I was facing 20 years my case ended with me getting 5 years probation. Beyond grateful for him. Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you as much as they are able to.
