New York Child Abuse Defense Attorney
Child Abuse & Deportation Defense for Immigrants
As it is considered a crime of
moral turpitude, a child abuse conviction can result in deportation for non-U.S. citizens.
This applies for crimes of moral turpitude committed within five years
after entry to the United States and which result in a prison sentence
of one year or more. Additionally, being convicted of two such crimes
not related to a single scheme of criminal misconduct can result in deportation,
regardless of when the crimes were committed or the sentence imposed.
It is therefore imperative that you contact a New York deportation defense
lawyer immediately if you are facing child abuse charges. Even if you
have only been accused of this crime, don't wait to seek legal advice.
The earlier your legal counsel can address your case, the greater the
opportunities to take the needed actions to defend your rights and avoid the
effect of conviction on your immigration status. This may be achieved by such methods as a
reduction and removal of criminal charges, a skilled defense resulting in acquittal, an
appeal or a
motion to vacate a conviction, plea or sentence.
We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan,
Rockland County and Westchester County.
