Alcohol,  Case Results,

College students sometimes make mistakes. In an effort to look cool in front of their peers, they might break the law. This was the case for a 20-year-old client of  Hessler Law who was charged with a Class C misdemeanor possession of alcohol. Approached by law enforcement at a Colts game, the young man was holding a beer and eventually found himself charged with an offense.

criminal lawyers in Indianapolis, IN negotiated the client’s case to a diversion agreement in which the young man completed an alcohol education class and 15 hours of community service. After successfully completing all aspects of this agreement, the young man’s 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.
