Licensee was charged with violating Section 471.033(1)(c) and (d), Florida Statutes; having a license to practice engineering revoked… by the licensing authority of another state; being convicted or found guilty of… a crime in any jurisdiction which directly relates to the practice of engineering or the ability to practice engineering. Licensee pleaded guilty to criminal charges of accessing a computer and obtaining information. These charges stemmed from Licensee having accessed a computer without authorization and thereby obtained information from a protected computer, which was valued to exceed $5,000. The computer, which was unlawfully accessed, belonged to Licensee’s previous employer.
Ruling: The case was presented to the full Board upon a voluntary relinquishment of license. The Board accepted the relinquishment of license with Licensee’s agreement to never reapply for licensure as a Professional Engineer in Florida. Final Order was issued on April 19, 2018.
