SHARE: Share on Facebook Share on Facebook Share on Google+

Mr. Alonso-Bernate was charged with attempting to enter the United States with a false passport and visa. Mr. Seitles persuasively argued to the Government that Mr. Alonso-Bernate arrived to the United States with a false document for the sole purpose of seeking poltical asylum.

Mr. Seitles provided the Government with documentation to support his client’s cause, including evidence that Mr. Alonso-Bernate had been kidnapped while in Colombia and that his uncle had been granted political asylum by the United States Government in 2003.

The Judge dismissed all criminal charges against Mr. Alonso-Bernate.
