A bank teller in Indiana was recently charged with Level 6 theft after being accused of manipulating deposits and transferring money out of her drawer and into a “dummy account.” The woman was on video all day, so the theft was caught on tape and the prosecution had compelling evidence linking her to the criminal activity. Luckily, she was able to get connected with a criminal defense attorney at Hessler Law, PC.

Attorney Sean Hessler‘s client did admit to the Level 6 theft, and was sentenced to one year of probation. When she successfully completes her period of probation, the client’s felony will be converted to a misdemeanor under Indiana’s Alternative Misdemeanor Sentencing Statute.

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.
