Hot on the heels of the Harvard Law School report that ripped “overzealous” Maricopa County prosecutors a new one… the AZ State Bar yesterday ordered Juan “Kermit” Martinez to be placed on probation for a year.

The order states that Martinez violated three Supreme Court rules governing the conduct of attorneys:

** Engaging in unprofessional conduct.

** Using means that have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden any other person, or using methods of obtaining evidence that violate the legal rights of such a person by, among other things, improperly attacking the defendant.

** Engaging in professional misconduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice.

State Bar puts Martinez on probation for professional misconduct

The initial charges were filed last December by Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice, an association of criminal defense attorneys. The 28-page charge detailed Martinez’ actions in 11 murder cases — including the Jodi Arias case — going back a decade.

The charges were vetted by the Bar, then passed to the Supreme Court’s Attorney Discipline Probable Cause Committee.

Martinez has 10 days to appeal the admonition. If he does, the matter will go to a formal hearing.

Neither Martinez nor the County Attorney’s Office have indicated whether he will appeal.

Still pending is another Bar charge lodged against Martinez for publishing a book about the Jodi  Arias case before it has gone to appeal.

Harvard Death-Penalty Study Rips Maricopa County Prosecutors A New One

in Latest News by

Check out the interesting post below from Phoenix New Times (8/23).

Here’s an excerpt:

Maricopa County’s death-penalty system is plagued by “overzealous” prosecutors and creates a high number of questionable death-penalty cases, according to a new Harvard Law School report – (opens 55-page PDF report in a new window.)

“Too Broken to Fix: Part I: An In-Depth Look at America’s Outlier Death Penalty Counties,” by the school’s Fair Punishment Project, identifies Maricopa as one of 16 “outliers” among the nation’s 3,143 counties or “county equivalents,” for having sentenced five or more defendants to death during the period 2010-2015.

Jeannette Gallagher, Juan Martinez, and Vincent Imbordino account for more than one-third of all of the capital cases (21 of 61) in which the Arizona Supreme Court has found problems on direct appeal since 2006. The higher court overturned or vacated the death penalty in four of the 21 cases and found instances of “improper behavior” in eight of the cases.

10-28 retrial - more non-sensical BS from kermit

The report notes that the state Supreme Court found that Martinez — who gained worldwide fame as the prosecutor in the Jodi Arias trial — committed misconduct in at least three capital cases. Additionally, the state’s high court cited 17 examples where Martinez had acted “inappropriately” in the murder prosecution of Shawn Patrick Lynch. (The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the death penalty in that case for reasons unrelated to alleged prosecutor problems.)

Smith has harsh words for the three prosecutors.

“They don’t have the temperament required to prosecute a jaywalking citation, and what they’re being entrusted with is the death penalty,” he tells New Times. “They shouldn’t be prosecuting misdemeanor cases, much less deciding whether or not somebody lives or dies.” >>>
