Attorney Sean Hessler assisted a 20-year-old college student after being stopped for walking around campus, holding a beer. A misdemeanor conviction for underage drinking put this student’s record and license at risk, in addition to paying several hundred dollars in fines.
Attorney Hessler had his client admitted into a diversion program that only involved paying a $385 fine. This protected the student’s record, license, and saved them from the inconvenience and costs involved with a minor in possession charge.
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.
