Engineer Avoids Felony Drug and Weapons Charges

An engineer who was having an admittedly poor personal time in his life had been travelling through Ohio when he attracted the attention of a police officer while in a store parking lot. After further investigation, the officer found cocaine and a handgun in the engineer’s vehicle. He was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle. His case was ultimately indicted and came to be heard in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.

For a professional, this was a worst case scenario. Felony convictions would make him unemployable. A felony drug conviction carries a mandatory 6 month to 5 year license suspension. Both offenses carried the potential of prison. For a military veteran and person who had lived his life in a law abiding manner, it was an almost overwhelming situation. It was under these circumstances that he reached out to attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent him and most importantly, to try and keep 2 felony convictions off his record.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client on the case. After multiple court dates, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate the dismissal of the felony drug charge and the reduction of the felony drug charge to a misdemeanor. Our client received no fine and no probation. In one year, we will return to court on his behalf and file a motion to seal or expunge the record of the conviction, which if granted will completely remove this case from his criminal background.
