Whether the 1995 conviction was of the Michael-Jackson-is-a-sick-fuck variety or the David Sklansky “You mean, you aren’t 18?” kind is unclear. Regardless, immigration officials want the 38-year-old Sheikhan sent back to the land of Ayatollahs as soon as possible.
“[Sheikhan] was targeted for ICE arrest because of his criminal history,” Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the LVRJ. “ICE has an ongoing initiative called Operation Predator targeting individuals, including foreign nationals, who prey upon and sexually exploit children.”
Kice said Sheikhan’s conviction is “a deportable offense, but ultimately it will be up to an immigration judge to make that determination.”
“We want to see him removed from the United States,” said Kice.
Sheikhan, who served nine months in jail and five years of probation for the 1995 conviction, resides in Las Vegas and has been a legal resident of the US since 1983 and is married to a U.S. citizen. He has a 9-year-old daughter.
