In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) terminated proceedings upon finding the respondent's grand theft conviction under Florida Stat. 812.014(2)(c)(1) was not a categorical crime involving moral turpitude and that the conviction records did not establish an intent to permanently deprive the owner of property. The decision was written by Member John Guendelsberger and joined by Member Sharon Hoffman and Member Elise Manuel.
