My friend is a green card holder of the United States and was recently charged with assault in the first and second degree,false imprisonment and reckless endangerment. He is planning to travel outside of the US for vacation in another country. I didn't think this was a good idea but he assured me that his lawyer said it was alright. Despite that I decided to get a second opinion. Therefore with all that said would you advise this? Thanks.Thanks for your answers. They are greatly appreciated. However per Cynthia's question regarding what type of lawyer gave such advice, it was a criminal defense attorney.
