A conviction within the meaning of this code means a plea or
verdict of guilty or a conviction following a plea of nolo
contendere. Any action which a board is permitted to take following
the establishment of a conviction may be taken when the time for
appeal has elapsed, or the judgment of conviction has been affirmed
on appeal or when an order granting probation is made suspending the
imposition of sentence, irrespective of a subsequent order under the
provisions of Section 1203.4 of the Penal Code. However, a board may
not deny a license to an applicant who is otherwise qualified
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 480.
Nothing in this section shall apply to the licensure of persons
pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 6000) of Division 3.
