This was a complex case that was bifurcated between Common Pleas and Municipal Court due one incident giving rise to two separate crimes – one being felony, and one being a misdemeanor. Unfortunately, at first, we negotiated and applied her for diversion, which she was denied due to an open case in Municipal Court. After getting her possession of marijuana dismissed, we then reapplied her for diversion. Because the possession case was dismissed, she was then accepted into diversion. Therefore, if she successfully completes diversion, her felony theft offense will also be dismissed. If you need an attorney for a theft case in Columbus, call our office!
