Sometimes a Columbus criminal defense attorney has to trust his client to do what needs to be done – especially in Juvenile cases involving "hold opens." After extensive negotiations with the Franklin County Prosecutor's office, there was a plea offer to our client. Mr. Itayim, who represented our client in this matter, demanded that because of her clean record she be given the opportunity to have her case dismissed. The end result of this is what is called a "hold open." Our client has six months to do what the court asks of her. If she is successful, her case will be dismissed at the end of this period.
