How long can ICE hold me before getting deported? 8 Answers as of September 23, 2013I want to turn myself into ICE for overstaying my f1 visa and I have a criminal conviction in the past but I have never been in removal proceedings and have never had an immigration case. I don't want to stay here anymore and don't care to comeback. I just want to leave but I don't want to be held in lockup for weeks on end. Would I even be held?

It depends on your conviction. They might not hold you at all, and let you leave on your own. Hire an attorney to help you. Also, I am not sure why you would like to turn yourself in, rather than leaving the country, so an attorney's advice that you can get in private is a really good idea in this case.
