Castillo-Cruz v. Holder, No. 06-70896

By FindLaw Staff on September 17, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's application for cancellation of removal, the petition is granted in part where: 1) the BIA erred in characterizing receipt of stolen property as a crime of moral turpitude; and 2) the BIA needed to decide whether petitioner's petty theft conviction fell within the petty offenses exception of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  However, the petition is denied in part where the BIA correctly determined that petitioner's conviction for petty theft constituted a crime of moral turpitude.
