- The decision could pave the way for immigration case to be reviewed after she was arrested in 2010 for using another person's legal document to work .
- Latorre was backed by a judge who ruled in her favor after finding that her two attorneys were not forthcoming when they advised her to take a plea bargain.
- The deal did not protect the woman from being deported and sent back to Peru - after leaving there at the age of 17.
A Peruvian mother of three children was pardoned by Colorado Governor Jared Polis after spending the last three years in sanctuary at a church while avoiding a deportation order from ICE.
The Democratic politician's decision could now pave the way for Ingrid Encalada Latorre to have her immigration case reviewed.
Latorre unlawfully entered the United States in 2000 as a 17-year-old. But she got caught in the crosshairs of U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement in 2010 when she was arrested at her Bolder, Colorado, nursing home job for using false identification documents to gain employment.
