Visa or Green Card Holder Charged With Shoplifting

The attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall represent many permanent residents and visa holders who have been charged with shoplifting in Mercer County. Whether you hold a Green Card, H-1 visa through your employer, F-1 student visa, or a H-4 dependant visa, shoplifting is a crime of moral turpitude that can lead to deportation. You will therefore need to avoid a conviction if you have been charged with shoplifting. Representation by a highly qualified criminal defense lawyer is going to provide you with the best opportunity to achieve this objective. Our lawyers are highly qualified to serve you in this role with former prosecutors that have over 100 years of combined experience defending shoplifting at the Mercer County Superior Court and in municipal courts like the one in Lawrence Township, Hamilton, West Windsor and Trenton. Call us anytime 24/7 from an immediate free consultation with one of our attorneys.

Deportation As The Result Of A Shoplifting Conviction

Federal Law provides for deportation of an alien who is convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude. The term “moral turpitude” has a loose meaning for immigration purposes and certainly includes shoplifting. While a single crime of moral turpitude such as shoplifting in Mercer County typically does not trigger revocation of a visa or Green Card, it is common for individuals convicted of shoplifting to run into issues attempting to reenter the United State. Officers from United States Customs often flag aliens who have a criminal record since Section 212(a)(2)(a)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act can render aliens inadmissible following a conviction for a crime of moral turpitude. You are subject to this recourse if you are an alien and have an immigration status that includes the following:

  • Permanent Resident
  • F-1 (Student Visa)
  • F-2 (Dependent of F-1)
  • H-1B (Work Visa)
  • H-4 (Dependent of H-1)

The stakes in a shoplifting case are obviously much higher for someone who lacks citizenship. Failure to avert guilt can lead to deportation and, at a very minimum, serious affect your ability to reenter the country. Every reasonable effort to win your case must be undertaken and hiring the right attorney is a must in reaching this goal.
