A college student, about to graduate, with a promising accounting career faced a crisis. He was at an off campus party that was visited by police officers. The police officers charged the gentleman with drug paraphernalia.
This college student had an internship with a prominent accounting firm and a job lined up with the same firm after graduating. The accounting firm does background checks. A drug paraphernalia conviction would leave him jobless.
This gentleman is friends with a local prosecutor. When asking for a referral, the prosecutor suggested that he speak with attorney Chase Mallory. After speaking with attorney Mallory, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent this young man on the case.
Attorney Mallory and attorney Ben Luftman represented the client and passionately argued that this particular individual was otherwise exceptional and deserved a chance to wipe the slate clean. Providing supporting documentation, the prosecutor, or does not ordinarily dismiss drug-related offenses, was ultimately persuaded to make an exception. Upon showing that the young man had successfully graduated and was studying for the CPA exam, the charge was dismissed.
The result and subsequent expungement or sealing of his record will wipe the slate clean for this young college graduate. It will allow him to accept the job offer and move forward with his life.
