What are immigration & other consequences if someone takes a plea of 653.22 no contest, in order to get 647(b) count dismissed?


Recommended Posts

Citation for 647(b) CA PC Solicitation in an online sting. As soon as knock on the hotel door; police cited. After pre-trial, offer is: plead no contest to count II 653.22 (loitering in a place where prostitution has occurred) , so that count I 647(b) (soliciting prostitution) would be dismissed. Sentencing: 1 yr court probation; fine $250; submit confidential HIV report; 

What are the immigration (currently permanent resident), employment and other consequences of taking the plea? Considering seeking immigration attorney and going to trail with a different representation. If go to trial and loose, are the immigration and other consequences significantly worst? Are the risk/rewards worth going to trial? 
Appreciate your expert answers.
