Indianapolis criminal defense attorney Sean Hessler was contacted by a woman in her 20s after she was charged with a Class D felony possession of heroin. The charge came after she had been found passed out in her car in a gas station parking lot. Police came and searched both her and the car and found heroin in her arm. She also saw a second charge possession of narcotic drugs. The woman was a dancer and had seen a total of five similar drug charges in her lifetime – all of which were class D felonies. Her previous charges ranged from cocaine, controlled substance and narcotic drugs.
Attorney Sean Hessler took the case to Marion County court. Because the woman also had a second case of possession of narcotics – another Class D felony in Hendricks County, she was admitted into a drug treatment court. Hessler used this to get the Marion County case dismissed. Our client was able to get the treatment she needed to gain control of her life – a positive result.
