Attorney Sean Hessler represented a 50-year-old woman caring for her mother. Hessler’s client was accused of Level 5 felony bank fraud for attempting to deposit bad checks into her account. The client tried to deposit checks she received from a supposed grant company. The checks bounced, and his client was charged with intentionally trying to steal money from the bank.
Attorney Hessler found that the company was really a scam: the victim would pay administrative fees. Through witness depositions and discussions with the prosecutor, Hessler was able to show his client was the victim and the scammers were in the wrong. The case was dismissed.
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.
