If you find yourself accused of a crime, it’s crucial that you contact an experienced attorney, who will passionately work to protect your rights and help you find the best possible outcome. When a 20-year-old student at Indiana University was charged with misdemeanor offenses for possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession, he found himself locked up for several days. Even though he reached out to an attorney, the young man’s requests for legal assistance went largely unanswered. Desperate to go home and unsure of what to do, the young man finally contacted Hessler Law PC to determine how these charges would negatively impact his life.

Attorney Sean Hessler consulted with the young man to discuss the case and once retained, attorney Hessler immediately began working on his client’s behalf, in an effort to secure his release and mitigate the charges against him. Attorney Hessler negotiated with the prosecutor and arranged to have the charges amended to time served for the lesser included offense of marijuana possession rather than the more severe drug paraphernalia charge. As a result of attorney Hessler’s intervention and capable legal representation, his client was free to return home and was excused from further concern.

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.
