Battery,  Case Results,

The criminal court process can be overwhelming for anyone. Sometimes, it just gets to be too much, and those involved in cases want proceedings to be done with as soon as possible. Such was the case for a Hessler Law, PC client who was facing charges for Level 5 battery with a deadly weapon and serious bodily injury, Level 6 criminal recklessness, and Level 6 domestic battery. With a potential prison term of 16 years looming and an eagerness to get legal matters dealt with as soon as possible, she retained the counsel of Indianapolis criminal defense attorney Sean Hessler.

The charges arose from a fight with the father of her child, who the client stabbed. She admitted to this action – the Level 5 battery with a deadly weapon and serious bodily injury – and was sentenced to one year of home detention, and two years of probation.

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.
