A Marion County woman in her 60s found herself facing a misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and a Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. The woman worked as a nurse and was alleged to have gotten into an argument with police at her apartment complex in the middle of the night. She was involved in an altercation, drawing attention to the situation. After becoming difficult and creating a scene, the officer arrested her.
Concerned about her arrest, she knew experienced criminal defense lawyer Sean Hessler could help. Had this case gone to trial, attorney Hessler advised her to tell the truth. She did not immediately comply with the officer but was quickly taken down and handcuffed. We received a diversion which guaranteed no conviction for our client.
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.
