On June 28, 2011, an immigration judge of Houston sided with our argument and denied charge of deportability to a Lin & Valdez’ client. As a result, the removal proceeding of our client was terminated, and the BICE no longer has hold and detention to our client.
In this matter, the BICE alleged that our client is deportable and charged our client for having committed “Crime Involving Moral Turpitude” (“CIMT”) due to his conviction for Tempering Evidence under Texas Penal Code five years ago. The key issue, certainly, is whether the conviction of such a crime constitutes commission of CIMT. As the issue involves complex legal analysis, the presiding judge asked the government counsel and Attorney Stewart Lin, our director attorney, to submit their respective briefs to help the court decide this issue.
On June 28, 2011, in the hearing for this matter, the Court sided with Attorney Stewart Lin and agreed to our argument that our client’s conviction under this crime did not involve conviction of CIMT. As a result, the removal proceeding is terminated. As the government waives appeal, the government will not have hold and detention to our client, and the Court’s decision becomes final.
