A 30-year-old truck driver was recently charged with a level six felony for battery with moderate bodily injury – a new crime – after an altercation stemming from a night of drinking got out of hand. Wanting to avoid the up to two and a half years in prison he faced if convicted, the man retained the skilled legal help of Indianapolis assault and battery lawyer Sean Hessler.
After an investigation, attorney Hessler negotiated the charge down to a class A misdemeanor, as opposed to a felony. As a result, the client received one year suspended on probation.
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.
