May 1, 2014-A federal judge has dismissed a case against an Ohio man who was facing deportation.

Alfredo Ramos Gallegos has been cleared of all charges.

The undocumented citizen was arrested back in February after he was pulled over in Painesville, Ohio during a traffic stop.

The case against Ramos Gallegos sparked a large protest outside of the Federal Courthouse back in March.

Supporters argued that the father should be allowed to stay in the states with his family.

Since the judge's ruling, Ramos Gallegos has been granted a one-year stay of removal by immigration and customs.
