  • Expunged Georgia State First Offender

    Does an expunged Georgia State first Offender sentence in 1996 constitutes an immigration conviction in 2002? Has there been any notable amendment to IIRIRA?

      assuming that the person you are referring to is a resident alien, yes they can put you before a immigration judge for removal proceedings. Not fun.
      However, if the charge was in 1996, then you do qualify for relief of proceedings if you have lived in the US with a greencard for atleast 7 years.
      There is no ammendments to the 1996 immigration act. However there is a bill pending in the senate that will ammend the 1996 act.
      Lets hope it goes thru...

        Ikeja,

        My fiance in GA had a "matter" that went to court and then was given first ammendment treatment. We did some research and found out that under First offender act of GA, once u have completed your sentence fine, it is "automatically" removed/expunged from your record. It SHOULD NOT show in your GBI or FBI files from what we heard but you will need to confirm that with the lawyer. It still might be on record IF the court screwed up so double check for SURE.

        Let us know also what you find out on this as we are very interested. Thanks.
