Individual Seeking Asylum Arrested for Larceny

I represented an individual seeking asylum who was arrested for larceny over $250.00 for using another person’s credit card. He charged over $7,000.00 on the card.  My client paid the entire amount back to the alleged victim prior to the matter being heard in Worcester District Court.  I obtained many continuances to allow the client time to pay the monies back. The charges were eventually dismissed and the client suffered no immigration consequences.
