Recently, a 42-year-old nurse was charged with a Level 6 Felony of a controlled substance by fraud and Level 6 Felony for possession of a narcotic drug. She allegedly was taking extra medication out of the drug vault at work and keeping the excess for herself.

After enlisting drug attorney Sean Hessler, who aggressively advocated on her behalf, the woman only had to go through drug treatment court. While this requires an admission, frequent court visits, and counseling, once the terms were met, her case was dismissed. During this time, her nursing license was subject to review and possible suspension. But, due to attorney Hessler’s quick intervention, she is currently going through a three-year nursing probation program.

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.
