In Arizona, misconduct involving a weapon or weapons is extremely serious and a situation that is covered by the 13-3102 of Arizona Revised Statutes. Whether in the Phoenix area, or anywhere in Arizona, per A.R.S. §13-3102 “Misconduct Involving Weapons” can occur in many ways, and it is best to consult a defense attorney immediately upon charging by the State to review your options and develop a strategy to help achieve the best possible outcome.
While most ARS 13-3102 charges involve guns, individuals may still be charged with misconduct that involves a weapon if they have trafficked explosives for a gain, or if they enter a hydroelectric generation station while having a weapon on their person. Using a modified weapons, such as sawed off shotgun, or defacing weapons may also qualify for this charge.
