Underage Alcohol Possession Charge Dismissed

A young lady was at the Country Jam concert at The Ohio State University recently and was enjoying the parking lot before going into the show. The festivities included drinking with her friends. Unfortunately, she is 19 years old and unable to drink legally. While in the parking lot, she was approached by an officer from the Ohio Department of Public Safety and asked to produce her ID. When she did, the office verified she was under 21. She was subsequently charged with underage alcohol possession. Her case was then scheduled in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Being 19, the young lady realized very quickly that she did not want to have a criminal misdemeanor offense on her record. She quickly reached out to attorney Ben Luftman to discuss her situation and options. 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 the young lady on her case. Attorney Sabol was able to negotiate the dismissal of the case for our client’s agreement to pay court costs and attend and complete an underage alcohol class.

The dismissal of the case was followed by the filing of a motion to seal or expunge the record of the case. Once granted the case will be removed from our clients background, as well as the Franklin County Municipal Clerk of Courts website.
