Criminal Repercussions on Immigration Proceedings - Part I

Being charged with a crime when you are not a United States citizen can have harsh consequences on your immigration proceedings. Depending on the outcome of your criminal case, your legal status in this country might be in jeopardy. You may be facing detention, deportation, and/or prohibited re-entry. There are many criminal charges, from misdemeanors to felonies, which may impact your ability to stay legally in the United States, including drug charges, crimes of moral turpitude, aggravated felonies, and gun crimes. In Part I, we will be focusing on crimes considered within the realm of "moral turpitude."

Criminal Law: Theft in Florida Defined

In Florida, a person commits theft by knowingly taking or using, or attempting to take or use, someone else's property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive them of a right to or benefit from the property, or appropriating the property for their own (or someone else's) use. (Fla. Stat. Section 812.014). There are varying degrees that may be charged criminally, depending on the value or the item itself.
