Engineer Avoids Disorderly Conduct Conviction

A young professional was out in the Arena District in Columbus on a recent weekend enjoying the evening with his friends. One of his friends had too much to drink and was asked to leave a bar. One thing led to another and he was being arrested by the police. Trying to help his friend, the young engineer engaged the police. This was a mistake. He too was ultimately arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct. His case was then scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court.

The disorderly conduct charge is a fourth-degree misdemeanor. It is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and up to a $250 fine. The young man had spent a few hours in jail and was terrified at the prospect of spending any additional time there. Additionally, he did not want any criminal conviction to go on his background. It was under these circumstances that he reached out to attorney Ben Luftman for help.

Attorney Luftman attended his client’s arraignment without the engineer having to take time off of work to appear. After three court dates, attorney Luftman was able to negotiate a resolution where his client paid a $250 bond to the court and agreed to forfeit it to resolve the case. The bond forfeiture is not a conviction, carried potential of jail time, or probation and therefore met all of his client’s goals.
