Misdemeanor Theft Charge Dismissed

While shopping at a local Kroger store, a woman in her mid-50s made a poor and uncharacteristic choice. She tried to conceal a number of items and exit the store. The total value of the items was approximately $50. Prior to exiting the store, she was stopped by loss prevention. She was then taken back to the loss prevention office and when questioned about the items, she confessed to trying to take them. She was then charged with misdemeanor theft and her case was scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

She was extremely upset and disappointed with herself. She had never been charged with more than a traffic ticket and now faced a misdemeanor theft charge. She was also scared. She did not know what was going to happen. She reached out and had a phone consultation with attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to make the best out of what seemed to be a very bad situation for our client.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client on her case. We were able to negotiate the dismissal of her misdemeanor theft case for her payment of court costs and attendance at an anti-theft class. The dismissal, along with the subsequent expungement or sealing of her record will completely remove this very embarrassing and humbling ordeal from her record. Additionally, we were able to accomplish this without her having to appear in court, which was a great relief to her.
