College Student Avoids Falsification and Open Container Charges

A young college student who was in town for an Ohio State football game found himself in an extremely bad situation. Unaware of the drinking policy, he was having a bottled beer when he was stopped by the authorities for an open container violation. When asked his identifying information, incorrect information was relayed to the officer and the young man was subsequently charged with falsification. His case was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Having these convictions on his record was not an option for this young man, who had an otherwise spotless record and a very bright future ahead. An attorney who is close to the young man’s family reached out to attorney Ben Luftman to discuss the options and after the conversation, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was retained to represent the young man on his case.

After multiple court appearances on the young man’s behalf, attorney Luftman was able to negotiate the dismissal of both charges in exchange for the young man’s agreement to do a specified amount of community service and alcohol counseling. The result and subsequent expungement or sealing of the record of the case will completely remove it from public record and allow our client to move on with his life.
