I posted an article in early January regarding shoplifting offenses and the potential collateral consequences for permanent residents (green card holders) of a conviction (which include potential deportation). This morning I appeared in the Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey with regard to a shoplifting matter. The result was extremely satisfying to my client and should allow her to remain in this country permanently.
