Cheryl Cole Past Assault Conviction Could Affect Her Work Visa In The USA
December 2, 2010 § 2 Comments
Cheryl Cole has reportedly accepted a position on the judging panel for the U.S. version of X Factor, but she may have trouble smoothly transitioning stateside due to an assault occasioning actual bodily harm conviction she has against her from back in 2003. The arrest in question happened when Chezza was 19 and beginning her career with Girls Aloud. She was at a club in Surrey, and punched Sophie Amogbokpa when the bathroom attendant tried to stop the singer from taking a lollipop. She was then sentenced to 120 unpaid hours of community service! Ridiculous, right? However, U.S. law forces all visa applicants to disclose any convictions that they might have on their application forms. (perez hilton)
NOTE: Cheryl is a pretty strong candidate for a waiver to allow her to work in the US.
