If i get charged with a misdemeanor or felony would i be deported
You need to speak with and/or hire an defense attorney who also handles or has knowledge and experience with immigration law. Even a misdemeanor can have immigration consequences. The length of custody time and how the charge is classified (crime of moral turpitude) can cause immigration issues. Best of luck.
Where were you born? Are you a citizen? If not are you a citizen of a country on the temporary protection status? Was anyone injured? How many DUIs have you had in the past? There are too many questions to ask here so I suggest contacting a criminal defense attorney who has experience in this area.
Misdemeanor hit and run is a moral turpitude crime an can have consequences. It is necessary to review immigration implications while evaluating a case. It is key that you hire the best locally experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you that you can afford. You should obtain a free consultation as soon as possible. Good luck.
