Bakor v. Barr 18-3011 (8th Cir. 2020)
Nature of Case: Petitioner was ordered to be deported from the United States following a determination that they were convicted of two crimes of moral turpitude: criminal sexual conduct in the 5th degree and failure to comply with Minnesota’s sex offense registration statute. The Petitioner sought review of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ decision that they were both crimes involving moral turpitude.
Holding: The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals found that both of the crimes qualified as crimes involving moral turpitude, and thus that Petitioner was subject to removal from the United States.
