Through an unfortunate series of events, an elderly gentleman found himself charged with soliciting in Franklin County Municipal Court. Having never been charged with more than a traffic ticket, he was extremely concerned about a number of things. First, the charge is a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Second, having lived a long life with no prior criminal record, he did not want to begin with a soliciting charge.
After speaking with an experienced solicitation attorney Ben Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was retained to represent him on the charge. Attorney Dan Sabol represented our client at 6 court hearings. Ultimately he was able to negotiate the amendment of the soliciting charge to a lesser offense of disorderly conduct. Our client paid a fine and the case was over. To his great relief, there was no jail time, no probation and he did not have a soliciting conviction on his record. Additionally, the disorderly conduct charge will be sealed in one year and removed from his criminal background.
