My question involves criminal law for the state of: Arizona.
My son was cleared of the homicide (defense of a third party); but because he is a felon they wish to give him 3.5 years on a plea for 'constructive [weapons] possession.' Is there case law in his defense? Is it worth the risk taking this to a jury? Poss. 11 years if a jury convicts, as opposed to 3.5 years on a plea (class 3 burglary charge will dismiss if he pleads).
