Detroit Man Spared From Criminal Deportation For Prostitution

Jul 12, 2016, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Sex Crimes

Recently, a 55-year-old Vietnamese man, who immigrated to America in the 1980’s became entangled in an embarrassing and legally compromising position when he allegedly propositioned an undercover officer in Detroit. This led to charges of offering to engage a prostitute, which was very alarming due to the potential fallout a conviction could have on his life and career. Specifically, if convicted he would have to deal with mandatory jail time, registration as a sex offender, the likely loss of his job, which was the sole income used to support his family, and possible deportation because this type of offense is be considered a crime of moral turpitude. The man knew that he needed discrete and skillful legal representation, so he called upon Detroit criminal defense attorney Maurice Davis.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Maurice Davis understood his client’s fears and immediately began handling the case in the subtlest manner possible. He appeared with his client in court and after negotiating with the prosecutor, attorney Davis successfully achieved an outright dismissal. This outcome greatly relieved the client, who could continue living in this country and provide for his family without further concern.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
