A client of Hessler Law recently found themselves in some trouble after they were caught in possession of a controlled substance. In addition to this offense, they were facing multiple probation violations, including:

  • Not reporting to her probation officer
  • Not reporting her new charge
  • And more

Because of these violations and the possession charge, the woman was facing up to three years of incarceration, in addition to other collateral consequences.

Attorney Sean Hessler immediately got to work negotiating with the prosecutor in the client’s case. They eventually came to a deal that involved the woman serving a short Indiana Department of Correction sentence of 90 days. After the completion of that, both cases were done. Her probation was closed, did not have to complete any further classes or penalties, and her possession 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.
