Recently, a young college student found themselves in some trouble after they were caught with some beer while attending an Indy 500 event. A police officer saw her walking around with a beer, struck up a conversation, took her beer, and charged her with a class A misdemeanor for underage possession of alcohol. Knowing a conviction could greatly impact her education and future career, she reached out to Hessler Law for help.

Attorney Sean Hessler’s client was very civically-minded at school, and very involved with different aspects of campus life, so he was able to negotiate a diversion agreement on her behalf. This agreement included paying a fine. Once that payment was submitted, her 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.
