State Bar investigator urges disciplinary action against Jodi Arias prosecutor Juan Martinez over sex allegation
Read the full story @ AZCentral.com
An investigator for the State Bar of Arizona on Wednesday asked a state bar committee to consider disciplinary action against Deputy Maricopa County Attorney Juan Martinez because of allegations that he manipulated women to leak and obtain information during the Jodi Arias murder trial.
Martinez also is alleged to have flirtatiously communicated with a juror who had been removed from the trial to try to glean information about sitting jurors. The juror told investigators during a sworn deposition that she had texted photos of her naked breasts to Martinez after he told her he was “a breast man.”
The State Bar’s Attorney Discipline Probable Cause Committee could suggest a range of sanctions, from a reprimand, probation or suspension to a disciplinary hearing that could result in disbarment.
The Arizona Republic has learned that Martinez is likely a subject of a recent internal investigation into possible inappropriate behavior toward female employees of the County Attorney’s Office.
The Republic also learned that one of the women alleged in the State Bar complaint to be romantically linked to Martinez is now working in the County Attorney’s Office as a law clerk, which is similar to an intern.
The Republic in August requested copies of the county personnel investigation and an explanation of the clerk’s duties but has not yet received them.
The County Attorney’s Office and Martinez’ current attorney, Donald Wilson, declined comment. Martinez did not respond to a request for comment.
Multiple bar complaints filed:
As of March, Maricopa County had paid $150,000 in attorney’s fees to defend Martinez against bar complaints. That particular attorney no longer represents Martinez in newer bar complaints.
One complaint, which covered a decade’s worth of cases Martinez tried, including Arias, resulted in an offer of probation for Martinez from the Probable Cause Committee, but Martinez opted instead to face a disciplinary hearing.
