The Republican primary contest for the Gila County Attorney’s post pits a veteran prosecutor against a challenger who maintains that the incumbent has been “soft on crime.”
As prosecutors we very much thank and stand firm with Governor Brewer in her denial of the shockingly lenient recommendation from the Board of Executive Clemency in the Robert Flibotte matter. Without even having served one year of his sentence, the Board recommended he serve only five years of a 90-year sentence in the Arizona Department of Corrections. Flibotte was convicted of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, nine of which were designated as dangerous crimes against children because they involved young boys and girls under the age of 15 — one as young as 3 years old.
