Chandler Endangerment Defense Lawyer

Endangerment, or A.R.S. § 13-1201, can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony in Arizona. Under A.R.S. § 13-1201,

  1. A person commits endangerment by recklessly endangering another person with a substantial risk of imminent death or physical injury.
  2. Endangerment involving a substantial risk of imminent death is a class 6 felony. In all other cases, it is a class 1 misdemeanor.

ALMOST ALL ARIZONA GUN CRIMES CARRY A MANDATORY PRISON SENTENCE FOR THOSE WHO ARE FOUND GUILTY

Recklessness is defined as: a person is aware of and consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that a certain result will occur or that a certain circumstance exists. The risk must be of such a nature and degree that disregard for such risk constitutes a gross deviation from the standard of conduct that a reasonable person would observe in the situation.

The law is very broad in the area, and you could be charged with endangerment for not only using a firearm but any weapon or dangerous instrument as well. A dangerous instrument could be almost anything, such as a boot or an automobile.

If you discharge a firearm in Arizona, you can be charged with endangerment even if no one was hurt or you had no intent to injure anybody. An example of this would be recklessly firing a gun into the air. Even if the round did not hit anyone, you could still be charged with endangerment.

Misdemeanor endangerment, although not as serious as felony endangerment, is still a serious offense that could result in jail time and fines up to $2,500 if convicted.
Felony endangerment is a more serious crime that could include prison time. Felony endangerment for first-time offenders can include prison time up to 2 years for those convicted.

Had a self defense situation on a late Friday night. Called the emergency hotline and got in touch... with someone right away. Didn't matter how late it was. Once they understood the situation they gave me fantastic advice and steps and where fully prepared to spring into legal action on my behalf if they needed to. Throughly impressed. I'm heading to Chicago for the next month and I feel a lot better doing so with Attorneys For Freedom on my side. Chicago very much is a third world now and if I have to defend myself I can worry about keeping myself alive and safe rather than the legal part of it. I know that for sure.read more
