Not only will a skilled criminal defense lawyer work to clear your name if you are facing criminal charges, their experience will prove invaluable if you need to mitigate the impact of a conviction. Therefore, it is always best to consult with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Not long ago, a 29-year-old retail clerk and mother of three was charged with a felony embezzlement. Apparently, the woman was exploiting her employer’s return policy by taking various items from her workplace and returning them. Faced with a possible two-and-a-half-year prison term as well as a looming felony conviction that would impede her life for a long time afterward, the woman knew that she needed top-tier representation and contacted Indianapolis defense attorney Sean Hessler.

Once retained, attorney Hessler set to work and immediately discussed the case with the prosecution. Attorney Hessler effectively negotiated to have the felony embezzlement charge reduced to a misdemeanor level offense that would require 12 months of probation. Due to the woman’s levelheaded decision to seek legal intervention from attorney Hessler, she could move on from this transgression without a lingering felony conviction or any time behind bars.

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.
