Legal Question in Immigration Law in Illinois


One of my relative who was here with us on visit visa was caught shop lifting 2 yrs ago. At that time she had given her name slightly different from her passport name but she gave my home adress. She had left immediately without appearing for hearing. But i had recived only two letters so far from the court for her request to appear in the court. We did not take aby actions and its been a while since i heard anything from the court. My relative is planning to visit us in few weeks. I was wondering if it could be any problem on her visa or prohibit her from entering usa? Since i am the sponsor i want to know what i can do to avoif any hinderance.

She most likely has a bench warrant for her arrest and should take care of it.
