Father Avoids Prison on Felony Probation Violation

A gentleman who was put on probation for a prior felony conviction was facing a very serious problem. He was pulled over and charged with a new second OVI / DUI offense in 6 years and open container. This took place outside of central Ohio. Upon finding out, his probation officer filed a motion to revoke his bond and he was taken to jail. While in jail, his wife reached out to attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent the gentleman on his felony probation violation case.

Initially attorney Luftman filed for a bond hearing and once set was able to get his client release from jail. At the initial hearing, the probation officer’s opinion was to keep the gentleman in jail and to revoke his probation and send him to prison. Thereafter, attorney Luftman attended a number of hearing dates with his client. Throughout this time, he worked on getting the probation officer and prosecutor’s office to agree to recommend continuing probation, rather than sending his client to prison on the felony probation violation. Ultimately, attorney Luftman was successful and even though his client pleaded guilty to the OVI / DUI charge, the felony judge agreed to continue his probation. This result saved him potentially years in prison.
