A young woman, who was not a citizen and whose green card was about to expire was arrested for stealing from her employer. The woman was charged after her employer, using a surveillance camera, observed her stealing money from the cash register and fabricating fictitious receipts to cover her tracks. The woman who was not a United States citizen and whose residency was about to expire was concerned about the predicament she was in. If she renewed her green card, immigration authorities would discover her arrest and the possibility that she would face a negative immigration consequence would increase. Alternatively, she could do nothing and let her agree card expire at which point she would be left without status.
The woman hired Erick Cruz to represent her in the criminal case and to assist her in resolving her immigration issues. Erick began by having discussions with the prosecutor assigned to the case and convinced the prosecutor to allow the woman into the pre-trial intervention program. While in the program, the woman made monthly payments to her former employer and competed several hours of community service hours. Erick advised the client to complete the conditions as soon as possible so that he could return her case to court and get it dismissed. Erick spoke to the pre-trial intervention counselor who confirmed that the client completed all of her conditions and satisfied her monetary obligations. With this information, Erick returned to Court and spoke to the prosecutor who agreed to dismiss the charges early and allow the client to renew her green card.
If you or a loved one has been arrested and are facing immigration consequences call the Law Office of Erick Cruz and speak to Erick and discuss with him how he can get your case dismissed, charges and sentence reduced and your arrest record sealed or expunged.
