Board diciplinary actions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Have you ever really looked at the punishments and penalties in the Board
Newsletter?

In California, people fraudulently use and sign someone else's stamp, and
they get a $500.00 fine.  Somehow I don't find this a real deterrent to
unethical practice.
