Ogden, UT asked in Contracts, Criminal Law and Civil Rights for Utah

Q: I was protesting recently and got arrested and charged with indecent public display.

Currently I work as an exotic dancer and I am licensed with an SOB license. If I go in front of a judge and am found guilty of this, would that revoke my license, I can't find anything online regarding it, it says I need to tell them any past arrests but not what would revoke it. I can't lose my job and could really use some advice. It was my very first time being arrested ever.

A: The answer would depend on which municipality issued your SOB license. It also depends on what exactly you are being charged with. An arrest or conviction could possibly impact your license. You should contact an attorney immediately if you have been charged in connection with the recent protests. Many lawyers, myself included, are offering no-cost consultations to people arrested or charged in the recent protests.

A: I agree with Ian, Talk with as many Attorneys ASAP. Find one with connections with the Prosecutor's office which has charged you and one that is willing to deal with the license issue. Good luck!
