Being charged with drug-related crimes in Indiana are serious and it is critical to find a qualified criminal defense lawyer, who will be by your side and will work tirelessly for the best possible result. For example, a 24-year-old female graduate student, who was struggling with substance abuse issues faced a bleak reality after she was involved in a single car accident and the police charged her with felony possession of a narcotic drug, felony possession of a syringe, and a misdemeanor OWI. Since these type charges demand serious consequences, the young woman needed to find an Indianapolis criminal defense attorney with considerable experience with similar drug cases. This brought her to Hessler Law, PC, who consulted with her to evaluate the situation and began working towards a solution.

Defense attorney Sean Hessler used his considerable understanding of how Indiana pursues drug cases and helped the young woman admit herself into an 180-day rehab facility. By showing her good-faith effort to seek treatment, attorney Hessler successfully convinced the prosecution to dismiss the felony drug charges and reduce the consequences to the misdemeanor OWI. Ultimately, his young client had her license reinstated and only received a suspended sentence as well as one-year of probation. This outstanding resolution allowed her to easily move past this incident without the limitations of felony drug convictions hindering any future opportunities.

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.
