What if he was a foreigner?

Marv Albert

Marv Albert, the prominent play-by-play sports broadcaster, was convicted on October 25, 1997, of assault and battery and received a twelve month suspended sentence. He plea bargained from more serious sexual assault charges. Despite his plea to lesser offenses and lesser punishments, he would still be deportable pursuant to INA § 237(a)(2)(E)(i), crime of domestic violence, and INA § 237(a)(2)(A)(iii), aggravated felony. The fact that the victim was a girlfriend and not his wife would not protect him from being deported for a domestic violence crime. His aggravated felony would be committing a crime of violence with a sentence of a year or more. Because his crime is an aggravated felony, there would be no relief from removal available to him. Certainly not what Marv Albert had in mind.
