A 50-year-old man with a great deal of criminal drug history was charged with a Class D felony possession of cocaine. The charge came after he was seen by a police officer, buying drugs in a well-known drug area in Indianapolis. The officer saw him walk up to the dealer and walk away. Once the man approached an intersection, the officer stopped him. Cocaine was found on the front seat of his car.
With a great deal of criminal and drug history, the man was unsure of where to turn. At this point he went to Hessler Law Firm for legal consult from a criminal defense lawyer in Indianapolis. Attorney Sean Hessler represented him. The unemployed man dove into the story of his life circumstances. He had a sick wife at home who needed his care. Under a plea in Marion County court, he was suspended for one year with no probation as a lesser Class A misdemeanor sentence.
