My fiance plead guilty in 2009 for robbery w dangerous weapon.

This answer was rated:

My fiance plead guilty in 2009 for robbery w dangerous weapon. Has been on probation but got arrested for violations and now is in the county jail being held by immigration. They are trying to deport him because of the previous case. Yet his criminal lawyer never advised him that pleading guilty would affect his immigration status, hed he went to trial he would probably been found not guilty considering they had no fingerprints and someone even testified that he was in the car no where near the incident I was wondering if it is to late to file for an appeal or if there is anything I can do
