An out-of-state physician applied for his medical license in California. Prior to medical school he had a charge of boating under the influence of alcohol (BUI). He pled not guilty and was allowed to plead to a boating offense without reference to alcohol and judgment was deferred with terms and conditions. Upon completion of the terms, the record was expunged and ordered sealed.
However, when the doctor applied for his initial license in another state, he was required to accept an initial probationary license with terms and conditions pertaining to alcohol abuse.
