Our client was charged with passing, or, using the legal term, "uttering," a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. This means he attempted to exchange the counterfeit note in commerce, knowing it was fake. The merchant discovered that the $20 bill used was counterfeit, and our client was charged with the crime of uttering a counterfeit note. Our client was not a U.S. Citizen.
Attorney Alexander Conley represented our client in Salem District Court. Attorney Conley conferred with our client's immigration attorney about his immigration status. After a number of court appearances, Attorney Conley negotiated with the prosecutor for a general continuance. This outcome was particular important to our client, because an admission or conviction could have had immigration consequences.
