DISMISSED | POSSESSION of BURGLARY TOOLS/THEFT and FICTITIOUS PLATE – State v. Mr. K. (DMC No. 7870) (Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court TR07-369): Mr. K. had been diagnosed with Asperger’s, and had become obsessed with concept of being a cat burglar. He was pulled over for having a fictitious license plate, and burglary tools and guns were found in his vehicle. When he relayed to the officer his fascination with the theory of being a cat burglar, he was charged with having a fictitious plate, a stolen gun and possession of burglary tools. We were able to present medical evidence to the County Attorney regarding Mr. K.’s mental impairment, plus they were not complying with the proper Discovery requirements, and they dismissed all charges against Mr. K.

DISORDERLY CONDUCT with a WEAPON (gun) DISMISSED – State v. Mr. W. (DMC No. 7363) (Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court CR2007-190): Mr. W. was bi-polar and having a manic episode when police were called to the Table Top RV Park. He was in an argument with his partner, when his partner saw Mr. W. going to get his 9mm weapon. His partner attacked Mr. W., and they fought over a 9mm hand gun and an AK 47. Various doors inside of the RV were damaged. We were able to show the Prosecutor that Mr. W. never actually handled a weapon nor threatened anyone. In addition, the alleged victim was no longer being cooperative. All charges were dismissed against Mr. W.

DISMISSED | FALSE REPORTING/DISORDERLY CONDUCT and MISCONDUCT with a WEAPON (gun) – State v. Mr. F. (DMC No. 7859) (Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court CR08-408): Mr. F. has previously been in an argument with his neighbor, when he went into the garage in order to clean his guns. The neighbor called Mr. F. over to talk about the previous incident. Mr. F. came over with a gun strapped to his back and one sticking out of his pocket. The neighbor said he felt uncomfortable, and Mr. F. put the rifle back in his garage but left the gun in his pocket. The police pulled up (because the neighbor’s wife mistakenly had called them thinking there was a problem) and Mr. F. put the gun in the bed of his pickup truck. When questioned about having a gun “on him” Mr. F. said that he did not. The officers then arrested him for False Reporting (because the gun was near him in the bed of the truck), Disorderly Conduct Dangerous and Misconduct With a Weapon. We were able to show the real story to the Prosecutor, and they agreed to dismiss all charges in exchange for 24 hours of community service. Mr. F. was originally looking at a minimum of 1 ½ years in prison if convicted.
