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.

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
