So I’m a 14 y/o female and recently a 35 y/o male has been contacting me through social media. At first our conversations were mutual and friendly. But we kept talking and now he’s interested in me romantically and sexually and I’m starting to feel uncomfortable. Also he lives in another... Read more »
The answer depends on numerous factors such as: what he was charged with, whether he has been convicted, whether he has an ICE hold (or has been referred immigration court), and, if so, whether he has any form of relief for which to apply.

I recently fell victim to an online dating/wire scam. I contacted my local authorities to file a police report and Western Union to file a fraud report.
