A restaurant employee recently went on a tool smurfing crime spree that spanned three counties in the state. This crime, which includes the act of passing fake prescriptions to all the pharmacies along the interstate the woman traveled as she committed these offenses, caused her to be charged with the following offenses:
- Two level six felonies for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud in one county
- Two level six felonies for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud in the second county
- Nine level six felonies for possession of narcotic drugs in the third county
- One level six felony for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud in the third county
If found guilty on all counts, this woman could spend 78 years in prison, so she retained the help of an Indianapolis drug lawyer at Hessler Law, PC.
Attorney Sean Hessler gathered evidence, which included video surveillance from the pharmacies his client visited, and began negotiations on the client’s behalf. Attorney Hessler was able to secure a deal for his client, though, in which she took one crime in each county. From here, she took a plea through which she was sentenced to two years of probation that was transferred back to Illinois, her state of residence.
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.
