Prison Avoided on Felony Marijuana Cultivation Charge

A young laborer found himself at a crossroads recently. His home had been raided after the authorities got a search warrant signed by a judge. The result of the raid found the young man charged with illegal marijuana cultivation, a felony of the second degree. If convicted, this young man was facing between two and eight years in prison. He was terrified. His case was then scheduled in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.

With his freedom on the line and having never been charged with a serious criminal offense, he turned to someone he trusted to refer him to an attorney that would fight to keep him out of prison. His friend, who is a local attorney, had one attorney in mind and told him he had to contact attorney Dan Sabol. After meeting with attorney Sabol and attorney Ben Luftman, the young man placed his faith and future in the hands of the Columbus Criminal Defense team.

We went to court on our client’s behalf 8 times. We thoroughly reviewed all of the discovery, including the warrant, complaint, police reports and investigative notes to find evidentiary weaknesses in the case. Ultimately, we negotiated a resolution where our client pled guilty to a lesser offense and a joint recommendation was made with the prosecutor for the judge to sentence our client to probation. The judge accepted the recommendation and our client did not spend a day in jail. To say he was appreciative and relieved would be an understatement.
