He may qualify under the Federal First Offender Exception, if that is his only conviction. I would suggest that he contact an experienced immigration attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding his case. (S)he would then be in a better position to analyze his situation and advise him of his options.
