Jeff Bonar Case

Former Flagstaff police officer Jeff Bonar will serve no jail time

Former Flagstaff police officer Jeff Bonar appeared in court with his attorney Marc J. Victor of The Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm. Bonar was charged with punching Marissa Morris in the face while serving an arrest warrant on Morris. Bonar attempted to arrest Morris because he thought she had an outstanding warrant. Morris resisted arrest, telling Bonar in the video that the warrant had been cleared. Bonar then allegedly punched her twice in the face as the two struggled.

At the news conference, alongside his attorney Marc J. Victor of the Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm, Bonar made his first public statements on the matter. Bonar’s argument has been that he was kicked in the groin and assaulted by the woman, Marissa Morris.

The punch was not excessive given the totality of the circumstances, Victor and Bonar said.

Jeffrey Bonar will serve no jail time unless he violates his unsupervised probation. He was sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation and will have to complete an anger management program, 80 hours of community service, and pay a $500 fine. If Mr. Bonar successfully completes that 18-month probation, then aggravated assault will be dismissed and there will be no charges remaining against Mr. Bonar.

Bonar’s attorney, Marc Victor, said the former officer was happy with the end result.

“We think we got to the right result. Our expectation is that all charges will be entirely dismissed,” 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. There are lots of Lawyer jokes out there but when you need a lawyer, turn to "Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm" , no jokes just results.Terry Lread more
