Being convicted for a second criminal offense can have devastating effects one one’s life. Indiana takes subsequent offenses seriously, so when a city employee found himself facing a second offense for misdemeanor possession of marijuana after a traffic stop revealed he was carrying the substance, he knew he needed help from Hessler Law, PC.
Marijuana possession is typically a Class B misdemeanor in Indiana, but because of the client’s prior conviction, it was heightened to a Class A offense. Wanting his client to avoid jail time, marijuana attorney Sean Hessler negotiated with the prosecution and got his client into a diversion program. After successfully paying diversion fees, the case was dismissed.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
