I was sentence to 18 months in federal prison for conspiracy to commit fraud with IRS taxes. My status is a permanent resident only and I understand that if I stay in prison for 12 months or more I will be deported. I have the right to appeal and my question is: do I have a chance to have the sentence reduced to serve only 11.5 months? to avoid deportation? I have a family here my wife and two small children which are US citizens.
