A Serious Need for Serious Criminal Defense
Your situation is very serious if you have been charged with re-entry following deportation from the United States. Federal laws stipulate that it is illegal “for any alien who has been denied admission, excluded, deported, removed, or has departed the United States while an order of exclusion, deportation or removal is outstanding and thereafter enters, attempts to enter, or is at any time found in the United States.”
You may have had a lucky result after you came into the U.S. illegally the first time — perhaps without understanding the requirements for entering legally. Now, however, you are in real trouble after you have entered illegally again. You may be convicted of a felony, a very serious crime. You may serve anywhere from two to 20 years in prison (depending on whether other crimes were committed) — and be deported again.
Maximize Your Chances at a Good Outcome
A successful outcome after you have been arrested for illegal re-entry after deportation will depend on your goals. Perhaps your case will be resolved in one of the following ways:
- You may be allowed to return home without doing prison time in the U.S. first.
- Your time in prison may be shortened.
- Your charges may be reduced to a less serious offense.
- Your defense attorney may learn that your first deportation was in error — which may change your charges simply to “illegal entry.”
What Are Your Goals?
A defense attorney cannot work magic after you have re-entered the U.S. following deportation. But a strong defense can make it more likely that you will have a good outcome — and be able to go on with your life: returning to your country, going to Canada, getting out of prison quickly, restoring your ability to immigrate to the U.S. in the future or some other positive result.
You may be unsure what to do next after you, your family member, your employee or your romantic partner has been charged with re-entry after deportation. One thing is sure, however: if at all possible, you should give yourself the greatest advantages that you can by looking for an experienced defense lawyer. Contact the Law Office of Mark J. Sacco, PLLC.
