If you find yourself accused of a crime in Indiana, it is important to find a skilled criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and advocate for the best possible result. This advice recently aided a 34-year-old nurse after an unfortunate incident led to a criminal mischief charge. Apparently, the woman went to her estranged husband’s residence and found him with another woman. Understandably, the woman was very distraught and when she attempted to leave, she struck the other woman’s parked vehicle. The police arrived and since they believed the damage was intentional, she was criminally charged. Now, the woman not only had to deal with the aftermath of damaging another person’s car, but a criminal conviction could seriously hinder her nursing career. With the goal of protecting her record and in turn her livelihood, she began searching for a veteran criminal defense lawyer and came to the offices of attorney Sean Hessler.

Attorney Hessler effectively negotiated on his client’s behalf, and since the damage was being fixed through her insurance company, he successfully arranged for the complete dismissal of the criminal mischief charge, which removed his client’s fear of having a permanent criminal record. Once the car was repaired, the woman was very pleased because attorney Hessler’s capable legal representation prevented an embarrassing and possibly career ending conviction.

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.
