Attorney Sean Hessler represented a 56-year-old warehouse worker accused of Class A Misdemeanor domestic violence. The client and the alleged victim had been in an argument, which led to a physical altercation. Hessler’s client called the police. When they arrived, the client told them the alleged victim was in the wrong, but she claimed he hit her.

The police arrested Hessler’s client. Through an investigation, Hessler revealed that witnesses supported his client’s claim that the alleged victim instigated the confrontation and that he acted in self defense. Hessler spoke with the prosecution 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.
