    What is "Moral Turpitude" in the immigration context?

  3. #3
    I believe it's 5 years. You can not have committed crimes involving moral turpitude... defined as "an act of baseness, vileness or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellow men or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man."
