My answer is that he can still be prosecuted, even if there is an immigration hold and even if there are pending deportation proceedings.

Sorry, but that is my honest opinion.

I don't have enough of the facts to know the answer to that, plus we are not allowed to give legal advice on this website.

If you tell me where the charges were filed I can refer you to a local criminal defense attorney there and may be able to find one who offers a free consultation.
