KBN Retained by Marion County Judge, Wife in Hit Skip Case


Columbus Criminal Defense Attorney Brad Koffel and Koffel Brininger Nesbitt have been retained by a Marion County judge and his wife who reportedly left the scene of a motor vehicle crash.

As reported by the Marion Star, Marion County Common Pleas Judge Jason D. Warner and his wife Julie Warner were involved in a crash on June 4 in Green Camp Township, and left the scene before authorities from the Ohio Highway Patrol arrived. According to a police report, Mrs. Warner was driving and Judge Warner was a passenger. The investigation remains active and ongoing.

In a statement published by the Star, Attorney Koffel notes:

"They reported the accident to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and subsequently to the Ohio State Patrol. Both Judge Warner and his wife voluntarily spoke to investigators and consented to the gathering of physical evidence from their vehicle. Once the physical evidence is received and reviewed, we expect the State of Ohio to release its findings to the public.
I have advised Judge Warner and Julie Warner to refrain from making any public comment until the investigation is completed."
