A 38-year-old construction worker found themselves charged with two offenses after using a company credit card that did not belong to him, including:

  • One level six forgery
  • Misdemeanor theft

In addition to the above offenses, the man was on probation for a previous offense, so he was charged with a probation violation, as well. Knowing the implications convictions for these crimes could have on his professional and personal life, the man reached out to Indianapolis criminal defense attorney Sean Hessler.

After an investigation ensued that included a review of receipts and interviews with Home Depot employees (who identified the man), the client admitted to the forgery and probation violation. As a result of this admission, he received a total sentence of two years’ probation on the new charges. The old probation was closed with no prior sanction thanks to Hessler Law P.C.

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.
