Moral Turpitude Charges Affecting Immigration

Our New York City Immigration Lawyer Can Defend You!

Crimes of moral turpitude are those which violate community standards of decency and which would shock the public conscience. They include acts which are considered shamefully wicked and constitute an extreme departure from usual standards of morality. An alien convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude within five years after entry to the United States and which results in a prison sentence of one year or more is subject to deportation. This is also the case if an alien is convicted of two such crimes not related to a single scheme of criminal misconduct, regardless of when the crimes were committed or the sentence imposed. If you have been accused of a crime of moral turpitude, it is vital you enlist the help of a New York criminal defense lawyer immediately. Call Musa-Obregon Law PC immediately to speak with a Queens immigration lawyer about your case.
