Businesswoman’s Misdemeanor Theft Charge Dismissed

While shopping at a local business, a businesswoman in her late 50s found herself in an extremely uncomfortable situation. She was picked up on camera concealing makeup and other items. She was then stopped before exiting the store and escorted back to loss prevention. After being questioned by loss prevention, the lady admitted to attempting to steal the items. She was charged with misdemeanor theft. Her case was scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court.

As soon as she was charged, she immediately began looking for an attorney to assist her with the misdemeanor theft case. She was extremely embarrassed. She was extremely concerned about the impact it could have on her career. She needed to try and get the misdemeanor theft charge minimized and off her record as quickly as possible. After speaking with attorney Ben Luftman, she decided to put her career in the hands of the Columbus Criminal Defense team.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client on the case. There was no evidentiary issued we could present on her behalf. She attempted to steal and she was caught. However, she had no prior criminal offenses and had led an otherwise exceptional life. Using those mitigating factors, we convinced the prosecutor to dismiss our client’s misdemeanor theft case for her payment of court costs. After 4 court dates, the prosecutor agreed to do that. Our client was overjoyed.

The dismissal, along with the subsequent expungement or sealing of her record will completely remove this misdemeanor theft case, this stain from her criminal background and will give her back her spotless record.
