A 67-year-old was recently charged with shoplifting. Apparently the store’s Loss Prevention Officer witnessed the act and recorded it on video. The client was exposed to a theft conviction, possible time in custody, and significant fines. Defense attorney Sean Hessler reviewed the materials, negotiated for a reduced outcome, and successfully resolved the matter with a diversion program and payment of court fees.

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.
