A federal appeals board has reopened the immigration case of Joeri DeBeer, giving the Dutch native who killed his guardian after being repeatedly molested by him another chance at fighting off deportation and eventually gaining U.S. citizenship. The Board of Immigration Appeals, an arm of the U.S. Department of Justice, ordered a new deportation hearing last month after a Contra Costa County Superior Court judge vacated DeBeer's 1986 criminal conviction and entered a finding of not guilty.

Joeri DeBeer gave the socket wrench one final turn, then stood back to admire the gold-trimmed license plate he had just mounted on the back of his brand new Toyota Celica GTS. "That looks awesome," said DeBeer, who sports a severe flat-top haircut and wears one small gold earring. "God, I have good taste." The license plate echoed his view: B NVIOUS.

A federal immigration judge in San Francisco Wednesday bolstered Dutch native Joeri DeBeer's hopes of avoiding deportation by dismissing the government's charge that DeBeer committed a crime of moral turpitude when he killed his abusive guardian as a teen-ager, according to DeBeer's attorney. The judge threw out the charge because DeBeer's conviction was expunged in March by a Superior Court judge in Contra Costa County.

An 18-year-old man who was convicted of killing his guardian and then freed on probation was rearrested last week for contacting his girlfriend, who had testified against him. Joeri DeBeer was arrested in Contra Costa County last Thursday for violating a judge's order not to contact Avona Matthews. In June, DeBeer was convicted of manslaughter in the death of Phillip A.

A Dutch teen-ager from Oakley, Calif., who is fighting deportation for killing a guardian who repeatedly molested him, may have his ordeal dramatized in a television movie. CBS is currently considering the proposal, said David Burke, who wants to write the script. Burke said he's interviewed Joeri DeBeer and has done substantial additional research on the case. DeBeer was molested by a previous guardian, Phillip Parsons. He shot Parsons to death April 9, 1985, in Dana Point, Calif.
