A case came to our criminal defense attorneys after a 40-year-old woman was charged with domestic violence against her 17-year-old son. The unemployed mother was accused of beating her son. As it turned out, the mother was only acting in self-defense.

Attorney Sean Hessler took her case and represented her with a strong defense in Marion County court. His knowledge and experience in domestic violence cases were of great help to her particular situation. With some limited criminal history on her record already, the mother was hopeful in being cleared of this inaccurate charge against her. After the discovery phase, it was evident there was a lack of evidence. Attorney Hessler helped the prosecutor see it as well and the 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.
