I agree with my colleague. Before you pay any bond or do anything for this individual, and before he or she makes any decisions with respect to the criminal case, it is absolutely necessary to make an appointment with an immigration attorney and with a criminal law attorney. And I strongly recommend that the two attorneys communicate with each other regarding this matter because the criminal history will have a direct impact on his immigration status. Good luck to you.
