Elected county attorneys also use their power to influence state lawmakers to pass ineffective, “tough-on-crime” laws – like mandatory minimum sentences, harsh repetitive offender statutes, and unnecessary sentencing enhancements – while rejecting laws that would bring safe, reliable, and meaningful criminal justice reform to Arizona. Worse, prosecutors then use these harsh, yet ineffective laws to pressure almost everyone accused of a crime to take a plea deal, eviscerating the right to a fair trial.


This toolkit was created for community leaders, nonpartisan organizations, reporters, and others who plan to engage in the county attorney race through voter education, candidate engagement, or media coverage.
