Do not file for anything before consulting privately with an attorney. The USCIS has the discretion to consider the crimes committed and likely will. In addition, depending on the sentence, your cousin may be deportable. Your cousin should speak to an attorney in his area. I'm located in Alexandria, Virginia.
