Recently, a 30-year-old delivery driver went to visit a house that was the target of undercover surveillance for suspected drug activity. His car was stopped, and the police ultimately found marijuana. The young man was then charged with a B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana and visiting a common nuisance. This exposed him to up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, with the help of criminal defense attorney Sean Hessler advocating for him, the man’s case was dismissed after completing a simple diversion agreement.

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.
