Recently a Hispanic woman in her 40s contacted Indianapolis criminal defense lawyers in a case that involved her son. The 17-year-old juvenile was driving her car without permission and committed a robbery. At the time of his charge, the stolen goods were found in her car. The car was registered under her name, creating the appearance that she was a willing participant in the crime. Having no involvement whatsoever, she was concerned after her car was seized by law enforcement.

Unable to get to her job at a nearby restaurant, she sought out the legal knowledge and guidance of experienced attorney Sean Hessler. He needed to prove that she was the owner of the vehicle but not a part of the plan. At the Marion County court hearing, Hessler was able to successfully clear her name and prove her innocence in the robbery. Soon after the court appearance, she was able to get her car back.

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.
