So, did you know Maricopa County has 135 pending death penalty cases?
That's a lot, right?
L.A. County, home to 9.9 million people, has only 36.
The Hon. James Keppel, Criminal Presiding Judge of Maricopa County, ordered County Attorney Andrew Thomas into a closed session Friday to discuss the matter.
Why a closed session? Choice quote from Stephen Dichter, from the Office of the Legal Advocate: “No one should see how the attorneys make the sausage.”
