A 30-year-old woman from Jackson County was in the process of a complicated divorce from her husband when she was charged with a protective order. The woman was a housekeeper at a hotel and was alleged to have made violent attacks and threats to her husband and his new girlfriend. Both wanted protection and filed this charge against her. To complicate things more, the husband and wife had children together.
Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer Sean Hessler stepped in after learning the facts of the case. Our client had no indication of any criminal history on her record. At the hearing, the husband and girlfriend were alleging the threats against her, but in an unbelievable and unclear presentation. Both sides of the story were told and everyone involved testified. In one court appearance, the protective order against our client was not granted. The judge chose not to believe their allegations based on their poor testimonial.
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.
