If your lawyer can get this reduced to a misdemeanor then it would not fall under a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude unless the specific law states selling to a minor means you have an intent to contribute to the delinquency of a minor.
Since I do not know what the law says that you are charged under and whether your lawyer can get this reduced to a misdemeanor I cannot say for sure you are safe from removal.
A misdemeanor crime of sale of alcohol to a minor is generally not a CMIT. But it depends on the wording of the law you are charged with.
Acts of moral turpitude, although not subject to exact definition, are characterized by "baseness, vileness, or the depravity in private and social duties which man owes to his fellow man, or to society in general * * *." This court has before found that moral turpitude is generally defined as an "[a]ct or behavior that gravely violates moral sentiment or accepted moral standards of [the] community and is a morally culpable quality held to be present in some criminal offenses as distinguished from others."
Generally any liquor violation is not a CMIT, it is a crime but not a CMIT unless it is raised to a felony because it is delinquency of a minor.
