A University City man who had been facing deportation to Ukraine because of a 22-year-old marijuana-related charge has gotten the good news that he can stay in this country.Vladimir Noskov’s guilty plea to marijuana possession when he was 22, in California, resulted in probation. Thirteen years later, immigration laws were changed to make the conviction a deportable offense. When Noskov was arrested for a peace disturbance in University City, the old conviction was discovered, and deportation proceedings were started. Since then, Noskov has gotten California authorities to reopen the old case and reduce the charge to a non-deportable offense and the federal government told him it is abandoning its efforts.
