Know the Consequences—Know Your Rights
Unfortunately, many green card holders and immigrants of other status do not realize that a criminal action can result in deportation or removal from the county. Depending on the crime, you could face possible deportation for a period of 20 years. Certain municipal offenses or multiple convictions can lead to deportation. It is important to understand the consequences of a criminal charge before you proceed in court. Our attorneys may be able to negotiate a plea bargain to a lesser offense that will not affect your immigration status. If you have been charged with a crime, you can talk to a Middlesex County defense lawyer 24 hours a day by calling 732-246-7126 for a free initial consultation.
