I only know one agent who lost her license for 6 months.... she was dismissed from an office and changed the expiration date on her listings in the mls.... and took them with her... the broker/owner was an attorney and hauled her but into court.... those listings belong to the office not to the agent... and he won....

Mishandling of escrow monies is probably still the #1 cause of a serious disciplinary action including loss of license. Oh, and there will be fines.

I don't think the "legal" issues that can cause an agent to lose a license is all that common in the big scheme of things.  What I see most often is agents not understanding the cash flow realities of the business and getting into personal financial trouble.  Not paying quarterlies is a great example then you're pretty much "scr***d at tax time in April.
