A 19-year-old college student attending Indiana University was charged with minor in possession of alcohol in his first offense. Facing the uncertainty of the future career implications associated with an underage drinking conviction, the young man knew it was in his best interest to seek legal help from the experienced Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer.

Hessler knew a conviction of an underage drinking charge would likely cause problems for his client as he continued his education and pursued a career after school. Using his wide experience in underage drinking cases, attorney Hessler formulated a diversionary agreement for his client. The student avoided a possession of alcohol conviction by enrolling in an alcohol course. His schooling will be unaffected and he will have no legal obstacles preventing him from seeking employment after college.

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.
