Businessman Avoids Assault Conviction

A young man in his late 20s was out one evening in downtown Columbus and after spending time at the local bars found himself in a store. While in the store, he got into a verbal altercation with a couple of store employees. A tussle ensued during which a display case was broken.

Ultimately, the Columbus Police were called and after investigating the situation, charged the young man with two counts of assault. He was arrested and taken to jail. His case was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

After bonding out, the young man took stock of his situation and understandably went through a range of emotions. He knew that he had to face the situation head on and he knew that for his career, he simply could not afford to be convicted of either assault charge. He picked up the phone and called attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent him on the assault case.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented the young man on his case. The case took a considerable amount of work, but after five court dates the assault charge was reduced a to a lesser disorderly conduct  charge. The young man was grateful that he would not have to spend any more time in jail, nor was he convicted of either assault charge. At the appropriate time, we will come back and file a motion to seal of expunge the record of the case and it will be removed from his criminal background.
