A University of Dayton student had just returned back from summer break when she went to a semester kick-off party and became seriously intoxicated. After having too much to drink, this student passed out near a building on campus. The police apprehended the girl when they noticed her near the building. Unfortunately, she got into a minor altercation with the police officers upon arrest and spent the remainder of her night in the Montgomery County Jail. The prosecutor and police filed a variety of different charges against her.

While there was a whole host of charges against the woman, the largest charge was an assault on a police officer charge. This is considered a fourth degree felony. If convicted, these students would have been sent to prison for up to 18 months and given a $5,000 fine. The case was prosecuted in a Montgomery County Common Pleas Court in Dayton, Ohio.

After her charges, this student came to Gounaris Abboud, LPA looking for help. Thankfully, the team was able to get her case dismissed through diversion/ILC. The prosecutor on the case agreed to reduce our client’s charge and instead issue a diversion program. After she completes the diversion program in about six months, our client will have her case dismissed. She will be able to leave court with a clean criminal record.

This will help her to be able to secure a job in the future without worrying that a prior conviction could eliminate her ability to qualify. Gounaris Abboud, LPA takes joy in representing students of local universities as well as locals in the Dayton area with their alleged crimes.
