Case Results

Woman Convicted of Felony Aggravated Kidnapping granted immigration bond

January 2018

A woman was arrested in Utah County after her former partner called the police.  He reported she would not let him leave the bathroom.  She had obtained a knife to open the bathroom door, and when police arrived, they arrested her for aggravated kidnapping with a dangerous weapon.  She pleaded guilty to a second degree felony, and was taken into ICE custody.

At the Aurora, Colorado Immigration Court, she argued with Keen Law attorneys she was eligible for a bond.  She was not convicted of an aggravated felony or a crime of moral turpitude, her attorney argued.  She presented evidence of her good character to the immigration judge and the judge found her to not be a danger to the community and released her on a bond of $7,500.

Sworn To Advocate For Our Clients

“My father was a U.S. citizen, but I was born in another country.” Everyone in the government kept telling me I didn’t belong in the U.S., that I should give up and go “home” to the U.K. Immigration kept trying to get rid of me, and even issued a deportation order. Luckily, I found Keen Law Offices. Mr. Keen was the only person who believed I was a citizen; he fought my case, and after a long battle, Immigration gave in. They even issued me a certificate stating that I was a U.S. citizen since birth!”Stephen, Immigration Client
