Recently, an Indiana man found himself charged with a Level 4 felony after a gun fell out of his pants at a traffic stop. Because of a previous conviction, this man was charged with possession of a firearm by a serious, violent felon, an offense that carries with it two to 12 years in prison. Wanting to avoid the harsh consequences of another conviction, the man contacted Indianapolis firearms lawyer Sean Hessler.
Due to dashcam video evidence, it was obvious the state was likely to prevail in this situation. As a result, he accepted a plea deal where he would spend six years in the Department of Corrections. While not the minimum sentence for this offense, the client did avoid the maximum amount of prison time for the firearms possession conviction.
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.
