Our client was facing up to ten years in prison for the Class C Felony of Burglary Second Degree (KRS 511.030) as well as possible deportation due to his green card status. A talented engineer, he had successfully immigrated to America and saved money to buy a rental property. A dispute over an eviction turned ugly and our client was charged with the offense of Burglary Second Degree. Because our firm was contact early in the process, we were able to investigate the case early and show that the tenant who filed the police report was lying (and a convicted felon). As a result, all charges were amended to a minor violation that would not impact the client’s immigration status even if convicted, then dropped entirely. The tenant was also evicted. The client kept his job, his immigration status, and soon the arrest will be expungeable.
