Possession of narcotic drugs is taken very seriously in Indiana. That is why a 38 year old dancer retained the counsel of Indianapolis drug attorney Sean Hessler when she found herself facing charges for possession of heroin. Because of her criminal history, a habitual offender enhancement was added to her sentence. This enhancement brought her possible sentence to eight and a half years.

The Level 6 possession of a narcotic drug charge arose after an arrest for an unrelated matter. After a warrant was issued against the client for not showing up to paternity court, she was taken to jail. Upon being searched here, law enforcement found the heroin, and criminal defense attorney Hessler‘s client was charged.

The client took a plea in which she admitted to possession of a narcotic drug. Her total sentence ended up being two years which were to be served on 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.
