College Student’s Drug Possession Charge Avoided

A young college student, who had visited Columbus for a music festival, did not have the best trip. While at the festival, he was seen by an undercover officer and ticketed for drug possession. His case was scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court.

After speaking with attorney Ben Luftman, the young man was fully aware of the potential issues with a conviction. First, he would have a drug conviction on his record. Second, his license would be suspended for 6 months to 3 years. The judge was not required to give him driving privileges either. Last and most important, a conviction would make this college student ineligible to received federal financial aid. Without that aid, he would have to drop out of college. This was a big deal.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented the young man on his case. Ultimately, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate a resolution where our client posted a $150 bond and forfeited it to the court. This resolution did not require our client to plead guilty and therefore avoided a conviction and license suspension. It will also allow him to keep his federal financial aid and accomplish his goals.

Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any future case.
