Can A Licensee in Prison Have an Active Real Estate License?

Licensee: Why would someone who has been convicted of a crime and is serving their sentence in prison still have an active real estate license?

As is set forth by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE), except for the DRE automatically suspending a license during the period of incarceration after conviction of a felony, regardless of whether that conviction has been appealed, a real estate license is not automatically suspended or revoked when a licensee is incarcerated. The same procedure that governs all criminal convictions as a basis for license discipline must be followed even in this circumstance. This means that the DRE must first file an Accusation against the individual.
