Out of interest, will Sutil struggle to get a US visa? Was this an act that "involves moral turpitude"? Did it involve a dangerous or deadly weapon?
Fortunately Sutil has the cash to get a good immigration lawyer to put his case forward in the best possible way.
Crimes committed against the person, family relationship, and sexual morality, which constitute moral turpitude as it relates to visa issuance, include:
(d) Assault with intent to commit serious bodily harm; and
(e) Assault with a dangerous or deadly weapon (some weapons may be found to be lethal as a matter of law, while others may or may not be found factually to be such, depending upon all the circumstances in the case. Such circumstances may include, but are not limited to, the size of the weapon, the manner of its use, and the nature and extent of injuries inflicted.);
Crimes committed against the person, family relationship, or sexual morality which do not involve moral turpitude include:
(1) Assault (simple) (i.e., any assault, which does not require an evil intent or depraved motive, although it may involve the use of a weapon, which is neither dangerous nor deadly);
Bizarrely the document also says in relation to manslaughter ... "adequate provocation is defined to be only situations in which there is a threat of deadly force, or in which a person finds his/her spouse in bed with another person."
