Domestic Violence, Assault and Aggravated Menacing Convictions Avoided

After a regrettable evening, a young married man in his early 30s found himself in the scariest position of his life, behind bars. An argument with his wife had escalated and the police were called. The young man was eventually arrested and charged with domestic violence, assault and aggravated menacing. While he was in jail, his mother, who does not live in central Ohio, researched attorneys and contacted attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to help in any way they could.

The first step was to attend the bond hearing. The young man was arrested by a Westerville Police Officer. In most cases, a charge filed by a Westerville Officer would be filed in Westerville Mayor’s Court. However, because this was an alleged offense of violence and there was a prosecuting witness, the case was filed in Franklin County Municipal Court. Attorney Luftman attended the bond hearing and was able to get his client released on his own signature.  No bond money had to be paid for his release from jail. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Attorney Dan Sabol continued with the representation of our client. After five court dates, attorney Sabol negotiated a resolution where the domestic violence and aggravated menacing charges were dismissed. The assault charge was amended to a lesser attempt offense. There was no additional jail time. Additionally, attorney Sabol was able to help our client avoid reporting to a probation officer after the case was resolved. This resolution allowed our client to put an extremely unfortunate and painful experience behind him while attempting to rebuild his life.

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.
