If you are a teacher in Southern California and have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), the first call you need to make is to a qualified professional licensing attorney who can assist you with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The Law Offices of Scott Henry can assist you with the following issues:

  • Pre-accusation investigations
  • Accusations from the licensing board
  • Formal hearings
  • Inquiry response
  • Mandatory reporting


If you are arrested for drunk driving in Riverside and you hold a teaching credential, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing or CTC may proceed with an investigation or inquiry into the arrest and, ultimately, a conviction. Many times, the main concern of the CTC is that you do not have an underlying addiction problem which could substantially affect your ability to perform teaching duties.

At The Law Offices of Scott Henry, we can help you find an addiction specialist who can evaluate you and issue findings on whether or not there is an underlying addiction problem. This could help to alleviate any concerns from the CTC and ultimately save your teaching credential.
