ARS 13-1204 Aggravated Assault with a Dangerous Weapon (gun) – Probation with no jail

Chris had a problem with the neighborhood kids harassing him and his wife. He overreacted one day and pointed a shotgun at a couple of the kids. The gun was not loaded but under Arizona law that doesn’t matter and Chris, who had no criminal history, was now facing mandatory minimum of 5 years in prison. Burges was able to detail the harassment with the prosecutor and negotiated probation with no jail for Chris.
