OVWI & Felony Domestic Violence ResolvedJun 05 2020, by Alcohol, Assault & Domestic Violence, Case Results, OWI in
Attorney Hessler recently helped a 41-year-old contactor deal with some very serious charges from two separate incidents. First, the client was found asleep at a stoplight, and following a blood test, he was found to be over the legal limit. This led to an OVWI, which put his license and career at risk. While his OVI was pending, the client also got into an alcohol-fueled argument with his girlfriend. The police eventually arrived and charged him with an additional felony 6 for domestic violence.
Hessler worked fast to resolve all of the clients’ charges with as little possible impact on his life. First, he presented evidence that the girlfriend made false claims regarding the argument because she was angry with the client. As a result, the domestic violence charge was dismissed. This removed the felony for his client, but Hessler also negotiated an OVWI plea that included special driving privileges so he could keep his job.
