In some situations, a criminal defense attorney may be able to get charges against you reduced or amended to a less serious offense. This was the case for an Indiana postal worker who was facing serious consequences for a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

After enlisting the help of Hessler Law, PC, the client saw his charge amended to simple battery. As a result, the man did not face the harsh collateral consequences of a domestic battery conviction, such as loss of the right to own a firearm. Additionally, he only had to complete 180 days of non-reporting probation. While he was convicted, only a misdemeanor remains on his record for this offense.

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.
