Is assault involving throwing a beer bottle (hits the person but no injury), considered moral turpitude?

Asked about 1 year ago - Virginia Beach, VA

My finace from the UK was in a bar fight years ago and he threw a bottle at the other guy, it hit him, but did not injur him. My fiance plead guilty and only received 100hrs community service. Is this a crime of moral turpitude? (I don't know any more specifics about the case..we're waiting on a criminal record to be sent to him, then me and then I'll send it to my lawyer...just looking for help until then)

    Answered . Generally speaking, a crime of moral turpitude involves lying, cheating, or stealing. I am not an immigration lawyer so in the context of immigration I do not know if it has a different meaning. I would be happy to refer you to immigration attorney.
