Could Kemar Highcon Face Deportation If Convicted Of Grand Theft Auto Felony?

Dancehall artist Kemar ‘Sauceboss’ Highcon is facing the possibility of a five years in prison for a third-degree charge of grand theft auto. The So Saucy singer was arrested last week.

He is being represented by attorney at law Paul Molle, a criminal defence and personal injury lawyer who practices in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Sources told DancehallMag that the deejay he will return to court “within the next 30 days” after being released on a $500 bond.

When contacted, Paul Molle told DancehallMag said he “would be willing to comment on the case on Friday of this week”.

The term, grand theft auto, is defined as when someone takes a vehicle without the owner’s permission and with the intent to deprive the owner of the vehicle permanently. It is considered a third-degree felony in Florida, if the automobile stolen is valued between $750 and $20,000. It can result in 5 years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $5,000.

Attorney-at-law Wayne Golding, of The Golding Law Firm, said it is possible that the Sauceboss could face deportation if he is not a US citizen.

“If he (Highcon) is convicted and he is not a US citizen, he could face deportation,” Golding said.

“Once you are a green card holder and commit an aggravated felony, you can be deported, You would be surprised at the small crimes for which you can be deported, charges like possession over 30 grams of weed, very miniscule crimes when compared with major crimes in terms of criminal activity. Green card holders can even be deported for domestic abuse.”

Calls to Kemar Highcon’s management were not immediately returned.

Even though the singer has lived in Stamford, Connecticut for a number of years, his immigration status is not immediately known.

The allegations are that Highcon was intercepted by police while driving a red, two-door 2014 BMW on West Atlantic Boulevard. Checks by the police revealed that the vehicle was reported stolen. The defendant was the sole occupant of the vehicle and in actual, physical control of the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop.

He was detained without incident, the police said.

Over the weekend, a video showed Kemar Highcon conversing with police officers who had pulled him over on West Atlantic Boulevard in Margate. The officers put him to sit down on the curb while they questioned him.

The defendant was read his Miranda Rights to which he waived his rights and agreed to speak with police, a section of the report read.

“The defendant stated that he knew the victim/registered owner and that the victim told him she was going to report the vehicle stolen due to him not returning it. The defendant knowingly obtained the vehicle and attempted to temporarily or permanently deprive the victim of her property,” the police report noted.
