Nursing Student has Falsification Charge Dismissed

A young 20-year-old nursing student and mother found herself in a very serious situation. Through a series of events regarding her insurance, she was charged with falsification. Her case was scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

She was adamant that she had done nothing wrong. She believed she had insurance and was given a card by her insurance company. A conviction would cause her serious problems in trying to get a job after nursing school. Falsification is an offense that involves dishonesty. Nobody wants to hire a nurse with that in her background. She was understandably beside herself.

It was under these circumstances that she reached out to speak with attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent her on the case.

Attorney Dan Sabol  represented her on the case. He went to court on her behalf five times. Each time he continued to explain to the prosecutor what had happened and how this was more of a mistake than a crime. Ultimately, on the fifth court date, the prosecutor agreed and dismissed the falsification charge upon the young lady’s payment of court costs. The dismissal and subsequent expungement, or sealing of her record will give her a legal clean slate and an opportunity to move forward with her life after finishing nursing school.

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.
