I'm just wondering why it is that you are concerned whether not this crime is considered one of moral turpitude? Is he considering going to law school? This information might be of some benefit to other attorneys who are looking to assist you in answering this question.

Your question seems to me to obviously be geared toward the immigration law significance attached to a crime involving moral turpitude, in immigration law parlance a CMIT. As you have directed your question to the criminal defense attorneys participating here, I will offer my own opinion that it is probably not a CMIT based upon the limited description you posted, but I think you need the input of those here who specialize in immigration law. I am accordingly going to edit the Practice Area of your question to "Immigration". Good luck

Really depends on the facts, charge and conviction. Assault will not usually be considered a CIMT, but the circumstances can change that. Consult with an attorney to get an answer regarding this.
