A laborer in his thirties was stopped for a traffic violation in Delaware, Ohio. His car was searched and marijuana and a marijuana pipe were found. He was charged with drug possession and drug paraphernalia.
Having previous criminal convictions made his case much more difficult. Additionally, part of this gentleman’s job requires him to drive to and from different job sites. Another criminal conviction would result in a license suspension of six months to five years. Driving privileges are not required to be granted. If convicted, this particular individual was likely looking at a one-year license suspension.
He was referred to the Columbus Criminal Defense team by a previous client. Attorney Dan Sabol represented him at court and worked tirelessly on his behalf. Ultimately, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate a resolution where our client paid a fee to the court and resolved his case without a conviction. This resolution is called a bond forfeiture.
The bond forfeiture allowed our client to avoid further drug convictions on his record and most importantly, allowed him to keep his license so that he could continue to work and support his family.
