Mr. Koffel’s client, 21, was accused of luring a 15 year old high school into a series of sexual encounters in Allen County, Ohio. He was indicted on 3 counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor under R.C. 2907.04 which carries prison up to 54 months and mandatory 25 years on the sex offender registry. The client rejected all plea offers – the final being probation. The case proceeded to trial with the accuser testifying as well as her mother and a 30 year veteran detective of the Lima Police Department. The client chose to testify in his defense. The jury returned a Not Guilty verdict on all counts in less than 90 minutes. (State of Ohio vs. D.H., Represented by Brad Koffel and Attorney Eric Willison).
