Petit Larceny Conviction Vacated

On April 6, the New York County Criminal Court vacated G.C.’s guilty plea and petit larceny conviction, which had triggered deportation proceedings against him, on the grounds that G.C. was given inaccurate immigration advice. G.C. then pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal trespass in satisfaction of the accusatory instrument against him. G.C. is no longer deportable as a consequence of his state criminal convictions. Scott H. Henney represented G.C. in this matter.
