The Law Offices of Barton Morris Can Help You Fight Your Charges

Facing criminal charges is hard enough, but when you are also a non-citizen and are facing those charges in the US, you are also dealing with the terrifying prospect of being deported and separated from your family. The legal choices you must make immediately following your arrest are of the utmost importance and should not be taken lightly. You should also not trust law enforcement or prosecutors to have your best interests in mind. If you are facing criminal charges and are a Legal Permanent Resident, visa-holder, or an undocumented immigrant, it is recommended that you contact an experienced Michigan immigration crimes lawyer who has experience handling these kinds of cases.

Crimes Which May Lead to Deportation

If you are a non-citizen, you have a lot to consider when deciding how to defend yourself against criminal charges. One of the most important things to consider is your immigration status and how it will be affected by these criminal charges. While you may be facing charges directly associated with your immigration, such as entering the country illegally or falsifying immigration documents, there are other crimes that can also result in deportation. These are referred to as aggravated felonies.

Aggravated felonies include:

  • Treason
  • Kidnapping
  • Prostitution
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft crimes
  • Violent crimes
  • Weapons crimes
  • Human trafficking
  • Human smuggling
  • Firearm trafficking
  • Tax evasion and tax fraud

Other serious crimes that can potentially affect your immigration status are crimes that are referred to as “crimes involving moral turpitude.” These crimes fall into three categories: Crimes against the government, crimes against people, and crimes against property. Examples of “moral turpitude” crimes include bribery, counterfeiting, arson, blackmail, burglary, fraud, robbery, assault, and sex crimes.
