    Because this statute has many offenses that a person could be charged with, the punishments for this crime range from Class 1 Misdemeanors to Class 2 Felonies, depending on what specific crime someone was charged with.

    Class 1 Misdemeanors can range from being sentenced to probation to up to 6 months in jail with a fine of up to $2,500.00 plus an 80% surcharge. A Class 1 misdemeanor misconduct involving a weapons charge could involve entering a public event or public establishment while carrying a deadly weapon after a reasonable request was made by a person of authority in the establishment to remove the weapon. Another example might be entering a polling place on election day with a deadly weapon.

    A Class 2 felony is much more serious with penalties of up to 12.5 years imprisonment for a first offense. If the defendant has prior convictions, the penalties can be a lot more serious, including up to 35 years of incarceration for multiple prior convictions.

    As you can see, this is a very serious crime, with severe consequences for those who are found guilty. If you are facing misconduct involving weapons charges, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. If you are facing gun-related charges, you should have an Arizona criminal defense attorney who is aware of the various strategies used by state and federal governments in the prosecution of weapons charges.
