This case involves a 42-year-old Columbian national man who was a lawful permanent resident of the United States for 26 years. The man served 5 years at a federal correctional institution after being convicted of drug trafficking and faced deportation from the United States at the end of the 5 years. Under the United States asylum law, the defendant would have been granted asylum if it could be proven he would be mistreated upon his return to his country of origin. An expert was sought to discuss whether the man’s national government would prosecute the client and if so, whether he would be sentenced to prison. The expert was also asked to comment on whether the prison conditions were humane.
