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 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
