Pinal County attorney wants to restructure office
CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- The Pinal County Board of Supervisors is being asked to approve a major reorganization that County Attorney Lando Voyles said would allow his office to handle more criminal prosecutions that go to trial.
Voyles briefed the board Tuesday. The Casa Grande Dispatch reported the reorganization would cost $1.5 million once benefits and other expenses are figured.
Voyles said his office needed to add personnel and refocus its efforts so that fewer cases are resolved through plea bargains.
Voyles is a Republican who took office this month after defeating Democratic incumbent Jim Walsh in November.
Supervisors said they want to review the plan. They took no formal action during Tuesday's work session.
