United States Fourth Circuit

Sotnikau v. Lynch, 15-2073

In a petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision affirming an IJ's decision finding petitioner subject to removal due to petitioner's conviction by guilty plea to involuntary manslaughter under Virginia law, the petition is granted where the BIA erroneously concluded that involuntary manslaughter as defined by Virginia law is categorically a crime involving moral turpitude.
