Just recently, a 27-year-old restaurant worker needed the help of an Indianapolis criminal lawyer after being charged with a Level 5 felony for corrupt business influence, a Level 5 felony theft, and six counts of forgery. The man was allegedly involved in a check fraud scheme involving fake lottery winnings, along with several other individuals where approximately $80,000 was taken.

The young man faced 56 total years in prison. However, with attorney Hessler’s help, the man’s sentence was drastically reduced to three years of home detention after admitting to only one count of theft and one count of fraud.

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.
