Corpuz v. Holder, 09-70181

A Philippine citizen's petition for review of a Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) decision declaring him ineligible for relief under former section 212(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) on the ground that he had served a "term of imprisonment" of over five years for conviction of an aggravated felony, is granted, as it cannot be confidently approximated how much time petitioner would have actually served in prison had he never spent time in pre-trial psychiatric confinement. Thus, the matter is remanded for a determination of the amount of constructive good time credit to which petitioner is entitled for the period of his civil confinement.
