People v. Limon, No. F056907

Trial court's denial of defendant's motion to vacate a 1988 conviction for marijuana related crimes, resulting in his deportation from the US in 1995 where he returned two years later illegally, is affirmed where: 1) defendant entered his guilty pleas with advisement by the court of the possible immigration consequences; and 2) since the court gave a proper alien status advisement, defendant's remaining claims are not wrongs encompassed by the scope of Penal Code section 1016.5.
