Endangering the Welfare of a Child Reduced to Disorderly Conduct

Our Columbus criminal defense attorneys were recently contacted by a 37-year-old man cited and charged by the Paloma Police Department for a 1st degree misdemeanor endangering a child in a traffic controlled device. A 1st degree misdemeanor endangering a child in a traffic controlled device is a serious charge which carries up to 6 months in jail, $1,000 fine and if convicted, can not be expunged from a criminal record. Our client had been in his suburban neighborhood and gave his son a behind-the-wheel driving lesson.

Police observed the underage driver operating the vehicle without a permit and cited our client. Our client contacted our attorneys and believing the charges against him were not serious, nor that he had done anything wrong in allowing his son to drive without a permit, our client decided to represent himself through his first three court hearings. Our client’s case was heading for a jury trial when he realized the serious nature of the charges against him and retained Columbus criminal defense attorneys to represent him. Before the case went to trial our attorneys successfully negotiated the charge against our client to be reduced to one count of disorderly conduct, a charge that can be expunged from a record.
