Shawn Sheikhan

Publié le 25 septembre 2007 par Poker

Shawn Sheikhan un des prétendants au titre de grande gueule de l'année et joueur des High Stakes a un souci avec la justice américaine qui veut le renvoyer en Iran...

Because en 1995 il est soupçonné, et je laisse des guillemets car je ne peux l'affirmer, de "conviction of sexual battery and annoyance or molestation of a child charges" soit attentat voir plus à la pudeur sur mineur...

Bref il a déjà fait 9 mois de prison en 1995 et 5 ans de probation mais là il n'est plus le bienvenu sur le sol US. Donc retour pays rapidement si ses avocats ne le sortent pas de ce mauvais pas.

Une nouvelle qui l rend encore moins sympatique le garçon.

Shawn Sheikhan of High Stakes Golf Faces Deportation Charges


Shawn Sheikhan faces possible deportation back to Iran stemming from a 1995 conviction of sexual battery and annoyance or molestation of a child charges.

Sheikhan, 38, is a well-known poker player, gambler, and local business owner. He was reportedly arrested at his home on August 30 and held in jail for over a week before posting $10,000 bail.

According to the Review Journal:

"This individual was targeted for ICE arrest because of his criminal history," Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an e-mail message Wednesday. "ICE has an ongoing initiative called Operation Predator targeting individuals, including foreign nationals, who prey upon and sexually exploit children."

The misdemeanor conviction occured in Contra Costa County, Calif.

Sheikhan's lawyers are fighting the charges.


Shawn Sheikhan May Be Shipped Back to Iran Over Sexual Battery Conviction
Shawn "Sheiky" Sheikhan, the Persian poker pro best described as arrogant, combative, abrasive and shitty at golf, is facing deportation back to Iran over a 12 year old California conviction on charges of "sexual battery and annoyance or molestation of a child," reports the Las Vegas Review Journal.

"[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.
