Pinal County attorney wants to restructure office

Updated:

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - The Pinal County Board of Supervisors is being asked to approve a major reorganization that County Attorney Lando Voyles says would allow his office to handle more criminal prosecutions that go to trial.

Voyles briefed the board Tuesday on his plan that the Casa Grande Dispatch, reports would cost $1.5 million once benefits and other expenses are figured in.

Voyles says his office needs 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 January.

Supervisors said they want to review the plan. They took no formal action during Tuesday's work session.
