BIA on Aggravated Assault, MCL 750.81a

Matter of Sangchul Lee, 2013 WL 3899749, A200-298-115 (BIA July 5, 2013) (unpublished).

The BIA held that aggravated assault, MCL 750.81a is not categorically a CIMT.  It specifically does not require the use of a weapon and it requires an intent less than an intent to commit murder or great bodily harm less than murder.

The BIA remanded for a modified categorical approach.
