Retiree’s Misdemeanor Theft Case Dismissed

A retiree in his 80s found himself in an incredibly frightening and unlikely situation recently. While shopping at a Kroger’s in Westerville, he was stopped by loss prevention. After discussing the circumstances, he was charged with misdemeanor theft. His case was then scheduled in Westerville Mayor’s Court.

To say the retiree was frightened would be an understatement. He researched online and knew that his theft was a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 6 months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. He was convinced he would receive both penalties. It was under these circumstances that he picked up the phone and called attorney Ben Luftman. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to keep him out of jail and to try and remove the misdemeanor theft conviction from his record.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Joe Kunkel represented our client on the misdemeanor theft case. Attorney Kunkel was able to negotiate a dismissal of our client’s case for his payment of court costs. The retiree was beyond relieved. The dismissal and subsequent expungment or sealing of his record will wipe the slate clean for him as well.
