Our attorneys represented a client who had been convicted of misdemeanor shoplifting and sentenced to probation and imprisonment, of which she had partially served. Our attorneys prepared legal papers arguing that the client’s crime qualified under the petty offense exception and because both the maximum possible penalty and term of imprisonment conditions were met, the granting of the exception was mandatory. Finally that client’s conviction of retail theft did not preclude a finding of good moral character as she had led an exemplary life since the incident. Client’s Naturalization application was approved and she was scheduled for her oath ceremony shortly thereafter.
