Since it usually involves the possibility of jail time, thousands of dollars in fees, and losing your ability to drive, being charged with an OWI in Indiana is a frightful experience for anyone. It was no different for a 54-year-old woman who was pulled over and subsequently charged with driving under the influence when it was determined she was over the legal limit. While this was her first offense, she suddenly found herself confronted with the aspect of some very stern consequences. She obviously wanted to handle this situation as quickly as possible and mitigate the impact; therefore, she decided to retain the services of experienced Indianapolis DUI lawyer Sean Hessler.

Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer Hessler immediately set to work to alleviate his client’s legal concerns. He utilized his considerable experience with similar cases to negotiate with the assigned prosecutor to reach a very favorable plea agreement. Under the terms of the arraignment, this woman could reinstate her license immediately and was only required to participate in one-year of non-reporting probation. By consulting with attorney Hessler, she not only saw a considerable reduction in the possible consequences, but also saved a considerable amount of time and money.

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.
