    Answered . Hit and Run can be considered a crime involving moral turpitude so even as a misdemeanor it could pose heavy immigration consequences for you. I recommend you speak to an attorney about this and great detail.

    Answered . 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.

    Answered . 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.
