SUMMARY:Defendant, a permanent resident of the United States originally from Ukraine, was an employee of Sea Pearl Escort, a prostitution service. Between October 1997 and December 1998 Defendant made arrangements over the phone for women to come to the United States from Russia in order to "work" for Sea Pearl as prostitutes. Defendant was convicted on July 30, 2001.
Defendant contested removal, appealing the Immigration Judge's ruling to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in 2003. This appeal landed in the Second Circuit in 2008, which then vacated the BIA's ruling and remanded the case back to the BIA.
