Violent Crimes in Arizona

Violent crime is always taken very seriously by prosecutors because it always involves a victim.  As a result, prosecutors are often hesitant to plea bargain in violent felony cases.  If a weapon is involved or serious injuries occur, the state will usually file a “dangerous nature” allegation.  If proven, this allegation results in a mandatory prison sentence, even for first offenses.  Criminal defense lawyer Nathan Leonardo represents people accused of a wide range of violent crimes in Arizona, including Maricopa County, Pima County, Pinal County, Cochise County, and Santa Cruz County:
