In the state of Indiana, underage alcohol offenses are serious matters that can oftentimes result in jail time, substantial fines and negative school repercussions. These types of charges frequently find a way into Hessler Law P.C. with young adults searching for answers. When a stressed out underage college student brought his possession of alcohol charge to criminal defense attorney Sean Hessler, he knew exactly how to handle the situation.

Hessler discussed the incident with his client. The student had gotten caught drinking an alcoholic beverage one night and was arrested immediately upon showing his underage ID to police officers. Attorney Hessler knew this one-time mistake would be best diverted and was likely to be dismissed with no further trouble from his client. At the conclusion of this underage case, the charge was successfully diverted. With a small fine, the young man’s case is eligible for a dismissal.

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.
