Charges Dismissed After Violating A Casino’s Voluntary Exclusion AgreementCategories: Burglary & Trespassing, Criminal Defense, Robbery
Some time ago, a Columbus man who was struggling with gambling addiction attempted to remove himself from the trappings and temptations of gambling by agreeing to sign a voluntary exclusion agreement with the area casinos. This contract requires a participant to refrain from entering casinos for one year, under the penalty of criminal charges. After a year an individual can reapply for admittance; however, this man neglected to follow through with this step of the voluntary exclusion agreement. As such, when he was found in a gambling establishment, he found himself charged with criminal trespassing. Since this oversight now placed him in a risky legal position involving possible jail and hefty fines, he consulted with the knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys at Luftman, Heck & Associates.
The experienced Columbus defense attorneys with LHA met with their client and after discussing his particular circumstances, set to work to alleviate his client’s concerns. This led us to negotiate with the prosecution, where we successfully achieved the dismissal of the criminal trespassing charge for the payment of court costs. This result greatly satisfied the client since it prevented any unnecessary damage to his criminal record and excused him from further worry.
