If you find yourself accused of a crime after an embarrassing incident, it is important to find a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney to protect your rights and advocate for the best possible result. This advice just helped a 52-year-old man, when he was stopped and charged with public indecency for allegedly showing his genitals to other drivers on the highway. The man was obviously mortified by the charge, but also faced very grim consequences. With the seriousness of the charge and it’s humiliating insinuations, the man knew that he needed equally serious legal counsel from a skilled Indiana sex crimes lawyer and contacted Sean Hessler.

Criminal lawyer Hessler did not want to see his client’s career or reputation unnecessarily compromised by this transgression and began negotiating with the assigned prosecutor. After discussing the incident with everyone involved and by using his extensive experience in similar cases, attorney Hessler effectively achieved a one-year suspended sentence and a term of probation for his client. The man was very pleased with this drastically reduced outcome, allowing him to resume his life without the potentially devastating impact of this conviction.

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.
