Sky is the Limit

San Tan Valley, Arizona - The Pinal County Attorney's Office in partnership with the Florence Unified School District, United Way, Compassion Care Center, Girl Scouts USA, and Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation was proud to host more than 35 sixth to eighth-grade girls and their mothers at Poston Butte Highschool to take part in this years' "Sky is the Limit" event.

Each participant was able to spend the Saturday with their mother designing their craft journals and listening to local experts talk about issues every teen should consider. It is an event designed to open the lines of communication between teens and their parents so that everyone is better prepared to react when issues arise in their lives.

Why PCAO will have a presence at the 54th legislative session

FLORENCE, Ariz. -- On Monday, January 14, 2019, the Arizona legislature held its opening ceremony.  Arizona Representative (R) David Cook invited both Pinal County Attorney Kent Volkmer and Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb to the 54th legislative session.  During the ceremony, Governor Doug Ducey made his fifth State of the State speech to attendees.

We will have representatives from Pinal County Attorney's Office at Arizona's 54th Legislative session to listen and answer questions on laws that may have an impact on Pinal County.  We asked County Attorney Kent Volkmer to explain why it is important for PCAO to have a presence during the 2019 legislative session.



Make a Diversion payment on the Pinal County Diversion Payment Portal.

At the discretion of the County Attorney, a defendant may participate in the PCAO Adult Diversion Program.  This program is administered pursuant to A.R.S. § 11-361 et seq. and is subject to individual eligibility criteria.

In this video, Jarrett talks about how he ended up in PCAO's Diversion Program

Under this program, a defendant enters a formal agreement that includes his/her admission to the crime and the defendant’s promise to abide by all program requirements. Diversion typically begins before formal legal proceedings commence. Diversion benefits the State and victims by resolving cases in a prompt and efficient manner, saving both time and public funds. Additionally, defendants  are more likely to successfully complete diversion programs and have lower recidivism rates than those sentenced to probation or prison. Before a defendant begins Diversion, PCAO calls the victim to discuss the matter. Court proceedings are suspended during participation in Diversion, except for occasional review hearings to confirm the defendant’s progress and compliance with program requirements. Successful completion results in dismissal of the charge(s) and no further prosecution of that matter; while failure to complete Diversion generally results in resumption of the criminal court proceedings and prosecution of the alleged offense(s).
