Advice and Comments

CIMT: If there is a CIMT prior such as any 484 offense, this makes a dangerous two CIMT convictions. To avoid a CIMT, consider plea to PC 459, 496, or VC 10851. For rules governing when CIMTs trigger a removal ground, see n. 3.

Prop 47 can reduce a qualifying prior 666 to misdemeanor. See materials on Prop 47 and Immigrants at www.ilrc.org/crimes
