Outcome: Reduction of Charge to Non CIMT
Client was detained for shoplifting and immediately sent to Immigration Detention Center in Adelanto to face deportation by the Immigration Court. The crime he was charged with was a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude. We came in the case, met with client in Adelanto, and after getting all the facts we presented the District Attorney with a new plea to a Temporary Possession of Stolen Property charge (a Crime that is NOT Involving Moral Turpitude). This led to client getting released from ICE Custody and avoiding deportation.
