NUNEZ VASQUEZ v. BARR

Holding that neither Virginia failure to stop after an accident (hit and run), in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-894, or identity theft, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-186.3(B1), is a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT). The Court ruled that mere failure to comply with reporting requirements is not reprehensible conduct and rejected the Government's argument that any offense that categorically involves fraud is a CIMT.
