Huge Win in the Eleventh Circuit!

After fighting her removal case for over two years, Murray Osorio PLLC won a huge victory today for our client and for many people in removal proceedings in the Eleventh Circuit.  The Eleventh Circuit held in a precedent decision that a conviction under OCGA § 16-8-2 is not an aggravated felony theft offense.  Successfully arguing that Georgia “theft by taking” doesn’t require property to be taken “without consent,” as is required for generic theft, we were able to demonstrate that the Georgia statute is overbroad and cannot be an aggravated felony theft offense.  Our firm is extremely happy for our client and for her family.
