A 32-year-old warehouse worker allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and was charged with a Level 6 felony of domestic violence in front of a child, Level 6 felony of strangulation, a misdemeanor of interfering with the reporting of a crime, and a violation of probation for a prior offense relating to operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
All in all, he faced four and a half years in custody and an additional year with a suspended driver’s license. However, criminal defense lawyer Hessler advocated on his behalf and arranged for his client to wrap up the entire situation with a single charge of Level 6 domestic violence and two years of probation. This spared him from any time behind bars the complete dismissal of his probation violation.
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.
