Doug Haig Case

Douglas Haig sentenced for manufacturing ammunition without a license

Marc Victor, the attorney defending Douglas Haig, the person of interest in the October 1st, 2017, shooting in Las Vegas said his client sold ammunition to Stephen Paddock but that he could not have known what Paddock had in mind. Victor said Haig wishes he would have been able to decipher a problem with Paddock ahead of time, but he saw no signs.

Haig was not charged in the October 2017 shooting itself where fifty-eight people died, more than 850 were injured.

“There’s nothing to hide there,” said Victor. “There was a sale, it was Doug, and he admits to it. He’s admitted to it from the beginning. The ammo wasn’t used in the tragedy but even if it was used in the tragedy, it still doesn’t cast any guilt on Doug cause look, liability just doesn’t extend to things that you have no knowledge of.”

Haig pleaded guilty in November to a federal charge of manufacturing ammunition without a license. Haig sold the illegally manufactured rounds to Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 concertgoers attending a Route 91 country music festival on Oct. 1, 2017.

Douglas Haig from Arizona was sentenced to 13 months in jail followed by three years of supervised release. Before sentencing, Judge James Mahan explicitly separated Haig from any responsibility for the October 1st shooter’s actions.

Haig’s attorney Marc Victor said the sentence was much lighter than the possible maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $55,000 fine.

“We would have liked an even lower sentence, but, fair enough, the judge basically split the baby here,” Victor said.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more

I want to thank Rachel Moss for her excellent work on my case. It was a traffic case that the DA... would not dismiss, Rachel got the charge dismissed without a trial and killed the DA with the facts and case law.
