Yesterday, I was caught stealing something in a retail shop, and a ticket was issued to me under the misdemeanor case, I assume it is also called as petty theft. The problem is I am an immigrant and on F1- Visa status, I am leaving for my country for a vacation tomorrow and will return on January 11, 2020. But my court date is on Jan 7, 2020, which I am likely to miss. I talked to my attorney regarding this, he said he will move my court date so that I could attend the court when I am back. But my worry is all about my immigration, if I am stooped at Port of entry. Will I be deported? I am really scared about this.
Can anyone help me out with this, please?
