Immigrant facing deportation and criminal defense issues

Immigrant facing deportation and criminal defense issues

Posted by Saul Steinberg | Oct 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

Many New Jersey residents understand what it's like when one problem exacerbates another. For instance, an immigrant who winds up facing legal trouble for one thing may also encounter related issues that affect his or her general residency status. Sometimes, strong criminal defense representation helps resolve such problems. One man, who happened to be living in another state without proper documentation, is currently facing multiple problems regarding impending removal and an indictment more than a decade old.

The man was taken into police custody a couple months ago when police suspected him of illegal drug possession. After his arrest, police learned that there was an existing warrant for him in another state. The incident relating to the warrant occurred in 2003.

The man was transferred to the appropriate court to answer to the charges. He is said to have entered a not guilty plea on 19 separate counts. Allegations against him include unauthorized use of a computer, forgery and evidence tampering.

This is reportedly not the first time the man has been in trouble with the law in the United States. He served time in prison after admitting guilt in a felonious assault in the 1990s as well. Criminal defense and immigrant advocacy are often intertwined. An experienced New Jersey attorney who is well-versed in U.S. immigration law can provide guidance to anyone facing deportation or criminal law issues in this state. While a particular outcome cannot be assumed, positive results are more likely when one acts alongside aggressive legal representation in court.
