DUI with accident and an illegal alien.

Question: My friend crashed her car last night and was taken in for DUI, she is also illegal. Will she get deported?
Answer: It is possible that ICE could put a hold on her while she is in custody on the DUI charge. Is she still in custody, or has she been released? She should speak to and hire a DUI attorney once out of custody. If she is still in custody and bailing her out is an option, I would certainly recommend that. Most people use a bail bondsman to help with the cost of bail. Call me to speak about the DUI charge itself, and/or if you need a referral for a bail bondsman.
