A dad who has lived in Britain since the age of 11 is set to be deported to Jamaica over a 10-year-old conviction under the controversial 'joint enterprise' law.
Reshawn Davi, 30, was arrested last Friday and told he would be sent back to Jamaica after Home Office officials realised he had spent two months in prison over a decade ago.
Reshawn – who has a newborn baby with his British wife of five years– will be deported on Tuesday because of the joint enterprise law.
It is used to convict people in gang-related cases if defendants "could" have foreseen violent acts by their pals.
But Supreme Court judges said in 2016 that the law had been misinterpreted for 30 years.
Reshawn spent two months in jail as a 20-year-old after an attempted robbery went wrong – and hasn't put a foot wrong since.
He lives with wife Tonique Kerr, 27, and daughter in northwest London – but heartless officials said it would not be "unduly harsh" for them to do without him.
But Tonique told the Independent she now faces having to apply for benefits as she won't be able to return to her job at an energy company without Reshawn looking their daughter.
She wept: "I had been hoping to go back to work so he could look after the baby. I won't be able to. That's not something I wanted because I don't want to sit down and rely on benefits. I've always worked. I've never been on benefits in my life.
"I never imagined being a single mum. I don't want to fall into the statistics of young single parents, especially for something that isn’t my fault and could have been prevented. It's hard, emotionally and I would need help financially because it is hard having a young baby.
"Reshawn is a great dad. He's been here all the time with her. She loved him. He does a lot – feeds her, changes her, plays with her. A child needs their dad. I don’t know what’s going to happen now."
A Home Office spokesperson said: "The planned charter flight to Jamaica is specifically for removing foreign criminals. Those detained for removal include people convicted of manslaughter, rape, violent crime and dealing class A drugs."
