Criminal attorney Hessler recently helped a man struggling with drug addiction when he was charged with an F2 felony for possession with intent to distribute (PWID). Apparently, the police were investigating someone else for selling meth, but our client was witnessed tossing a bag of narcotics. We negotiated with the prosecution for a result that would help our client, rather than send him to jail. We ultimately agreed to a four year suspended sentence for a reduced possession charge and had him admitted to drug treatment.

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.
