Client was contacted by police in a traffic stop. Unfortunately, due to Client’s intoxication and unfamiliarity with the police system in the United States.
Client, an international student, did not stop his vehicle soon enough and the police ultimately charged him with evading arrest (a third degree felony) and driving while intoxicated.
Client came to Mr. Blizzard worried that he would be deported due to these severe charges.
However, Mr. Blizzard was able to work with the prosecutor’s office and obtain pre-trial diversion for both the DWI and the Evading Arrest felony for him.
This meant the client would complete a period of 1 year of secret probation with the prosecutor’s office, and then he would be eligible for an immediate expunction after completion of the pre-trial diversion, removing the arrest and all records of the case from Client’s criminal history.
This allowed Client to continue to stay in the United States without facing deportation or denial of a visa or residency in the United States.
