Snader, I defend the rights and freedom of those accused of assault and weapons crimes.
Weapons Offenses Attorney in Phoenix
An assault or injury to another person caused by a gun, knife, car, or other dangerous weapon or instrument is a serious felony crime in Arizona. Upon conviction, this charge carries a mandatory, minimum prison sentence of 5 years. Even when the actual injury was not life threatening but the chance of injury was great, prosecutors in Arizona and Maricopa County will often charge the perpetrator with the felony crime of aggravated assault. To make matters worse, even putting someone in fear of bodily injury can be considered an aggravated assault, and result in an arrest. Whether the action results in physical harm or not, upon conviction the perpetrator faces a minimum five year prison sentence.
