Attorney Sean Hessler represented a 22-year-old college student facing a B Misdemeanor charge for disorderly conduct. This client was also on probation for a public intoxication charge, and if convicted for this new charge, he was looking at one-and-a-half years of incarceration.

The client was accused of being intoxicated at a public venue and getting into an argument with police. Attorney Hessler reviewed the account, and found the report did not align with videos of the incident. After speaking with the prosecutor, Hessler was able to get the case dismissed. He also negotiated a diversion to his client’s probation violation: an eight-hour class to close his probation after the new charge was dropped.

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.
