Case Conclusion Date: 07.01.2014
Practice Area: Appeals
Outcome: Conviction overturned/residence reinstated
Description: Habeas motion granted and his client’s conviction for a federal firearms offense was overturned by a U.S. District Court Judge based on his client’s actual innocence. She was released from immigration custody after spending a year in custody on the charge. The case went to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, where the government took a dismissal. One year later, we assisted the client in obtaining a 212(h) waiver before an immigration judge, and she is now a legal permanent resident and home with her daughter.
