Endangering Children Conviction Avoided

A parent in his mid-40s found himself in a regrettable position recently. Due to some poor decisions by his son involving alcohol and his son inviting friends over, he found himself charged with endangering children in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Having never been charged with more than a traffic violation and really being punished for his son’s lapses in judgment, the parent was beside himself. He did not know what was going to happen and was afraid that he would go to jail and have a stain on his criminal background that he really did not want to have.

He began researching attorneys and reached out to attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to try and make a difference in this parent’s life.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented the gentleman on his endangering children case. After four court dates, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate a resolution where the prosecutor agreed to reduce the endangering children charge to a lesser disorderly conduct charge. The judge did not sentence our client to any jail time, nor did he receive any probation. Our client paid his fines and costs that day and was done with the case.

In one year, we will return to file a motion to seal or expunge the record of our client’s conviction, as we do in all of our client’s criminal cases when they are eligible. After the case is sealed, it will be removed from the Franklin County Municipal Clerk of Courts website. It will also be permanently removed from this parent’s criminal background.
