Being caught with an illegal drug can be terrifying. The situation can be made even more nerve-wracking if you’re caught with such a substance in a truck used in the scope of your employment. Such was the case for a Hessler Law, PC client who found himself facing charges for Level 6 possession of meth and C misdemeanor for possession of paraphernalia. These charges added up to a total sentence of 20 months.
After a traffic stop in a work truck, police found meth and a pipe in the client’s truck, though it was concealed in his personal items. Ultimately, attorney Sean Hessler was able to get the case to plead down to only the Class C misdemeanor for possession of paraphernalia. The client’s total sentence in this situation was for time served, meaning he only spent two days in jail after his arrest.
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.
