A young businesswoman was distraught. Having been charged with falsification under circumstances she felt were unfair, she found herself in a bad place. Being a businesswoman, a falsification conviction could all but destroy her career. Any backgrounds check would reveal a conviction and who would want to do business with someone who might be considered untrustworthy?
It was under these circumstances that she began researching furiously to find the right attorney to help her avoid this type of conviction on her record. After speaking with attorney Ben Luftman, she retained the Columbus Criminal Defense team to represent her on the case.
Her case was originally scheduled in Reynoldsburg Mayor’s Court. Attorney Dan Sabol made a tactical decision to transfer the case to Franklin County Municipal Court. Over five court dates, attorney Sabol went to court on our client’s behalf and argued to the prosecutor that he would have a difficult time winning the case at a jury trial. The prosecutor ultimately agreed and instead of having a trial, offered to reduce the charge to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. Our client accepted the offer.
The disorderly conduct charge is not an offense involving dishonesty. The penalty was only a fine. Our client avoided jail time and probation. We will be able to come back to court at the appropriate time and seal or expunge the case from her record, permanently removing the stain of a very unfortunate situation.
Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any future case.
