Teacher’s Misdemeanor Theft Charge Dismissed

A young teacher was shopping at a Columbus-area Kroger recently when she found herself in quite a difficult situation. While exiting the store, she was stopped by loss prevention. She was asked to accompany them to their office. She complied. Once in the office, she was questioned about a number of items she had and why she had not paid for them. She admitted to concealing and attempting to take the assorted items, totaling approximately $48.00. She was then charged with misdemeanor theft and her case was scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court.

This turn of events was terrifying. The young teacher was concerned that her one-time lapse in judgment could cost her job and affect her licensure. She reached out to attorney Ben Luftman to discuss her options for the misdemeanor theft charge. After speaking with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to represent her on the case.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client. Due to her lack of prior criminal record and compliance with loss prevention, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate the dismissal of her misdemeanor theft case upon completion of a few negotiated conditions. The dismissal and subsequent expungement or sealing of her record will permanently remove the misdemeanor theft case from her background and allow her to move on from what could have been a life-changing afternoon.
