Our 29-year old client was accused of trying to run her ex-boyfriend off the road. She was charged with multiple, very serious felonies. These included felony domestic violence and battery causing moderate injury, which exposed her to time in custody. Since any felony convictions would turn this young woman’s life upside-down, Sean Hessler worked to find the best possible outcome.
After an independent investigation, it became clear that she had been overcharged and the situation did not warrant such harsh charges. We negotiated to have the entire case concluded with a plea to misdemeanor battery. As a result, she would serve a term of non-reporting probation, but spared from possible jail time and felony convictions.
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.
