PC 4573.8

PC 4573.8

Offense

Possess drugs or alcohol or instrument to use them in jail

Aggravated Felony (AF)

Not AF

Crime Involving Moral Turpitude (CIMT)

As a regulatory offense (possess without permission), should not be a CIMT

Other Removal Grounds

Should not be a deportable or inadmissible CS offense, but for safety plead to alcohol or look at 4573.5, .6.

Advice and Comments

CS. The term “drugs” is not divisible (see 4, above), and read in conjunction with 4573.6, it should be interpreted to include medicine that is not a controlled substance similar to 4573.5. But 4573.5 is safer, unless one can plead to alcohol.
