West Fargo contractor faces deportation for thefts
A West Fargo contractor who admitted late last year to stealing materials from other firms' building sites could be deported.
At a sentencing hearing on Tuesday, an attorney for Peter Spacek argued for a sentence of less than a year in hopes of avoiding a deportation. A theft-related conviction with a sentence of a year or more can be grounds for being deported.
"It's the breakup of my client's family we're concerned about," said Jesse Lange, Spacek's lawyer.
