Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rules Sex with Minor Not a Crime of Violence

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that a Peruvian immigrant cannot be deported for having sex with a minor because the act by itself is not a "crime of violence." The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed rulings by an immigration judge and the Board of Immigration Appeals that had earlier ordered the deportation of Victor Valencia, who petitioned for a rehearing of his case.
