Recently, a restaurant employee found himself charged with two Level 6 domestic batteries, and two Class A misdemeanor domestic batteries. These charges added up to a total potential sentence of five years, so he knew he needed help from an Indianapolis assault and battery lawyer from Hessler Law, PC.

The client was accused of knocking his girlfriend out in a crowded restaurant, and the incident was caught on camera. Despite the video evidence, attorney Sean Hessler was able to negotiate the charges down to a Class A misdemeanor. From this, the client was sentenced to time served. In this case, that meant the two days he spent in jail after being arrested for the original offenses.

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.
