(a) An application for licensure under this chapter may be denied by the state department if the applicant for a license has been convicted of a crime, as defined in Section 1265.2, or on the ground of knowingly making a false statement of fact required to be revealed in an application for such licensure.
(b) If the applicant is a firm, partnership, association, or corporation, the conviction of any officer, director, shareholder with a beneficial ownership interest in the applicant exceeding 10 percent, or the person in charge of the health facility may serve as the basis for denial of
the license by the state department. If the applicant is a political subdivision of the state or other governmental agency, the conviction of such a crime by the person in charge of the health facility may serve as the basis for denial of the license by the state department.
(c) The record of conviction or a certified copy thereof certified by the clerk of the court or by the judge in whose court the conviction is had, shall be conclusive evidence thereof.
