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.

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
