People sometimes find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, and they run into some trouble as a result. Such was the case for a 20-year-old college student who showed up to a drug dealer’s house as the people inside were being served a warrant. As he arrived, a cop approached the young man’s car, and smelled marijuana as the door opened. After the police officer looked into the vehicle and saw marijuana, he arrested the student. Knowing what a conviction for a class B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana could do to his education and other aspects of his life, the man retained the counsel of the Indianapolis drug crimes lawyers at Hessler Law.

Because the client had never been in trouble before, Indianapolis criminal attorney Sean Hessler negotiated a diversion agreement on his behalf. Once the student completed a drug education class, paid a fee, and 24 hours of community service work, his 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.
