Domestic Violence and Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude
Moral turpitude is a difficult concept to define, but an important one to address. A crime involving moral turpitude is a crime that can be considered inherently immoral, depraved, or vile. Domestic violence is considered a crime of moral turpitude. The consequences of being convicted of this kind of crime are generally more severe than those of other crimes. For example, a lawyer convicted of a crime of moral turpitude can be disbarred, or witnesses in court can be impeached, or legal foreign residents can be deported.
