Recently, a 24-year-old found himself facing multiple drug charges after being found passed out in his car in a fast food parking lot. The charges include:

  • A level six felony for possession of a syringe
  • A level six felony for possession of a narcotic drug

Knowing he faced two and a half years in prison for each offense if convicted, the man reached out to Indianapolis drug lawyer from Hessler Law, PC for help.

The client was found with a syringe (which tested positive for heroin) in plain sight, so attorney Hessler was able to negotiate an agreement in which the client would enter a six-month, out-of-state residential treatment program. After successfully completing his treatment, the prosecutor gave him a diversion on the case, and it 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.
