County Attorney Disagrees With Prison Reform Proposal

August 14, 2013

The Maricopa County Attorney is criticizing United States Attorney General Eric Holder’s prison reform proposal. Bill Montgomery says he agrees with flexibility in sentencing, but not outside of legislative channels.

“We’ve done that consistent with changes to the laws, not through arbitrary and capricious decisions to ignore laws on the books or manipulate sentences,” Montgomery says.

He’s worried drug cartels working in Arizona may get the wrong idea by this change in federal attitude.
