Can I get in trouble with immigration for PC 503, Embezzlement?
Yes! Embezzlement is a crime of moral character which can negatively impact your immigration status. If you are a non-citizen, you could be either deported (now called removed) or be made “inadmissible” for those who are not yet in the US but are attempting to immigrate here. Further, if the embezzlement is a felony, you could qualify for a deportation/removal or inadmissibility under the “aggravated felonies” rule.
What are the penalties for the charge of embezzlement?
The penalties for the charge of embezzlement will depend on the financial amount of the taking, whether there are priors and other facts such as already being on probation or parole. Call Attorney Wais Azami now at (714) 321-9999!
