Deportation Felony Reduced to Misdemeanor Upon Completion of Probation

In P. v. G.M., the defendant was arrested in possession of two pounds of marijuana.  Because he was citizen of Mexico and a permanent resident of the United States, he faced mandatory deportation if convicted of either of the two felony drug-trafficking counts filed against him.  Attorney Dudley was eventually able to secure a plea bargain to a non-deportable felony that was reduced to a MISDEMANOR upon the defendant’s successful completion of a probationary term.
