A young college student moved to central Ohio with the intention of starting his life over. Unfortunately, he picked up his old habits. He was pulled over during a routine traffic stop and arrested when the officer saw drugs in plain view. He was subsequently indicted with a felony drug possession charge for possession of cocaine.
He needed to avoid a conviction as he intended to join the military after college. Columbus criminal defense team lawyer Chase Mallory obtained a recognizance bond and reviewed written discovery and the cruiser video with our client. Having no Fourth Amendment violations, attorney Mallory had our client obtain a substance abuse assessment and filed a motion for intervention in lieu of conviction on the felony drug possession charge.
While the felony drug possession case was pending, our client completed intensive outpatient treatment as recommended by the assessment. During the hearing, the judge granted the motion for intervention in lieu of conviction. Consequently, he will avoid having a felony drug possession conviction on his record.
