Immigration Consequences of Selected Ohio Offenses

Quick Reference Guide

 
On March 31, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Padilla v. Kentucky, 599 U.S. 356 (2010). The Court held that, in light of the unique severity of deportation and the reality that immigration consequences of criminal convictions are inextricably linked to the criminal proceedings, the Sixth Amendment requires defense counsel to provide affirmative, competent advice to a noncitizen defendant regarding the immigration consequences of a guilty plea, and, absent such advice, a noncitizen may raise a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel.
 
This page provides guidance on the immigration consequences for offenses in the Ohio Revised Code, specifically whether those offenses would, for deportation purposes, constitute aggravated felonies, controlled substance crimes, crimes involving moral turpitude, or any other class of possibly deportable offenses. This page also provides tips on how to approach cases where a noncitizen is charged with these crimes. This resource was compiled by Becky Guzman, with the assistance of Lillian Mendieta, at the Franklin County Public Defender's Office (last updated August 2012). If you have questions or suggested changes, please contact Attorney Guzman at baguzman@franklincountyohio.gov or 614.525.8899.
 
The Immigration Defense Project has also provided an updated, concise (two-page) cheat sheet that summarizes the criminal offenses that may have immigration consequences for a noncitizen, available through their website.
 
Criminal defense attorneys and noncitizens in need of free advice regarding the immigration consequences of a criminal offense may contact the Immigrant Defense Project Hotline at their website or at 212.725.6422.
