Facing Criminal Charges as an Immigrant?
Immigration is a very serious and delicate matter. If you are trying to become a citizen of the United States, there are various terms you must comply with. As a permanent resident or immigrant, you must comply with the nation's laws and ordinances.
If you are arrested and charged with a crime, then you could face serious repercussions. Oftentimes, the most serious issue involved with a criminal offense of an immigrant is deportation and permanent removal. If you are convicted of a crime in the United States, and you are not a U.S. citizen, then you could be deported, and permanently excluded from re-entry. One of the main matters that can lead to your deportation orders is committing a crime.
Understanding Your Legal Options
Because of these very serious consequences, you must be made aware of your options, and you must have an attorney that knows how to help you fight the charges and pursue a favorable outcome. If the crime is a misdemeanor or felony, and you are convicted, then you face serious consequences.
One tricky area is a crime of moral turpitude. These are often minor crimes such as petty shoplifting. You may be granted a variety of plea options, however, accepting a plea option requires an admission of guilt, and even though the case is dismissed, you could still face removal. You need an attorney on your side that understands the severity of this situation and can work to ensure that you remain in the United States.
