Chandler Drive-by Shootings Lawyer

Drive-by Shootings are listed in the Arizona Revised Statutes under A.R.S. § 13-1209 as Class 2 Felonies. A person commits a drive-by shooting by intentionally discharging a weapon from a motor vehicle at a person, another occupied motor vehicle, or an occupied structure.

Motor Vehicle

A motor vehicle is defined in ARS § 28-101(50) as “a self-propelled vehicle” or “for the purposes of the laws relating to the imposition of a tax on motor vehicle fuel, a vehicle that is operated on the highways of this state and that is propelled by the use of motor vehicle fuel.”

Occupied Structure

An occupied structure as defined in A.R.S. § 13-3101 is “any building, object, vehicle, watercraft, aircraft or place with sides and a floor that is separately securable from any other structure attached to it, that is used for lodging, business, transportation, recreation or storage and in which one or more human beings either are or are likely to be present or so near as to be in equivalent danger at the time the discharge of a firearm occurs. An occupied structure includes any dwelling house, whether occupied, unoccupied, or vacant.”

Drive-by shootings are usually associated with gang-related activities, but unfortunately, road rage can also lead to someone intentionally discharging a weapon from a motor vehicle at another person.

This crime can be associated with an allegation of dangerousness, which can serve as a sentence enhancement. If you are charged with this crime, you can expect to be facing very harsh punishments. Because of the nature of this crime, it is a mandatory prison offense for those who are convicted. For first-time offenders, this crime carries a mandatory prison sentence of at least 7 years and a presumptive term of 10 1/2 years. You could face up to 21 years in prison for a first-time offense.

If you have been charged with a drive-by shooting crime in Arizona, securing a competent attorney who has experience in handling these types of cases is critical. An experienced criminal defense attorney could be the difference between incarceration and exoneration.

The lawyers at the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm have decades of experience representing people charged with all types of assault and gun crimes including drive-by shootings.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
