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 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
