Retail Theft Case Dismissed for Green Card immigrant
By: John D. Ioakimidis | Sep 28, 2015 | Recent Victories |
Our client who is a licensed Illinois nurse and living in the US on a green card was arrested for Retail Theft. A conviction for Retail Theft could trigger deportation or other immigration consequences. Further, a conviction could raise licensing issues with the Illinois Department of Financial Professional Regulation that licenses nurses. There was a lot at stake. Attorney John Ioakimidis represented our client, and the case was dismissed. We will now move forward and expunge the arrest record and erase the case from the public domain. Our client was very happy – not only will she keep her nursing license, but she will not have to worry about getting deported. Handling criminal cases for immigrants requires a criminal defense attorney who understands the immigration consequences of criminal cases.
