A 29-year-old restaurant worker was recently charged with a Level 6 felony for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. There allegedly was a family dispute involving a knife and a cell phone video. The evidence against the man was extremely strong, and he faced two and a half years in prison.

Although this case was intimidating, attorney Sean Hessler fought hard for his client. This paid off because criminal defense lawyer Sean Hessler negotiated to have his lengthy sentence reduced from two and a half years behind bars to two years of home detention.

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.
