Legal immigrant is being charged with class B felony.
Received offer from DA to plead down to lower class felony with probation and no jail time.
Will this plea cause the individual to be put into removal proceedings?
I agree with the other attorneys. This is very serious and very specific. It doesn't matter if a felony is reduced, even misdemeanors can cause severe immigration consequences. You are going to need to take the criminal documents to an immigration attorney, retain them, and have them have a serious discussion with your criminal attorney. If you decide not to do this and to just accept a plea you are putting your legal status in jeopardy.
