Your offence is equivalent to a Canadian statute that stipulates maximum sentence of no more that 10 years of imprisonment. Since it is still 10 years, it makes you inadmissible class in Canada. For more accurate assessment you are encouraged to contact my office and present me with a detailed court record. Legal fees are applicable.
