 INS V. ST. CYR   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Federal District Court accepted St. Cyr’s habeas corpus application and agreed that the new restrictions do not apply to removal proceedings brought against an alien who pleaded guilty to a deportable crime before their enactment.
Section 212(c) relief remains available for aliens, like St. Cyr, whose convictions were obtained through plea agreements and who, notwithstanding those convictions, would have been eligible for §212(c) relief at the time of their plea under the law then in effect.
Now that prosecutors have received the benefit of plea agreements, facilitated by the aliens’ belief in their continued eligibility for §212(c) relief, it would be contrary to considerations of fair notice, reasonable reliance, and settled expectations to hold that IIRIRA deprives them of any possibility of such relief.

 Amazon.com: Rampart Street (Valentin St. Cyr Mysteries): Books: David Fulmer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Cyr is a great character, and the fascinating city and its larger-than-life denizens intrigue as much as the complicated plot.
Cyr is merely going through the motions, working lethargically as a bouncer at Storyville boss Tom Anderson's cafe but staying away from his old haunts and avoiding sleuthing altogether.
Fulmer perfectly captures the cauldron of discontent that rules the dark streets and alleys of the night and the elegant houses where the wealthy indulge in legalized sin and its twin, corruption, where danger is held at bay by Pinkertons, a society that favors the well-heeled while detesting the downtrodden.

 State v. Martin Cyr
[¶2] The relevant facts may be summarized as follows: Cyr's estranged wife, Aimee Cyr, testified at trial that, on the night of September 16, 1999, Cyr arrived at her house to visit their children for the weekend and that he argued with her about divorce.
Because she feared that Cyr would take their children to his home in Vermont, Aimee told the investigating officer that she would not press charges unless Cyr failed to return their children on Sunday.
Although Cyr maintains that this testimony demonstrates that Aimee concocted the charges so that she could induce Rouleau to spend more time with her, the record offers no support for his conclusion.
