Mr. Koffel’s client, a Lieutenant with the Columbus Fire Department and career military father of 3, was falsely accused of felony assault in Licking County, OH. The indictment accused our client of viciously assaulting another driver in early 2022. Throughout the defense investigation discrepancies in the “victim’s” version of events were discovered. No offers were made nor did the client authorize any plea negotiations. The case lasted 2 days and the jury was out less than 30 minutes before finding the client Not Guilty.
