County Attorney Comments on Arizona Supreme Court Ruling in State v. Milke

PHOENIX – Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery issued the following statement today in response to the Arizona Supreme Court’s denial of the State’s Petition for Review of a Special Action Decision dismissing charges with prejudice in State v. Debra Milke:

“The denial of our petition for review is a dark day for Arizona’s criminal justice system. By refusing to review the Arizona Court of Appeals unprecedented expansion of Double Jeopardy and adopting the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal’s misconstruction of the case history, aided and abetted by selective citations to the record by the Defendant, the Arizona Supreme Court has deprived crime victims, particularly Christopher Milke, of their rights to fairness, due process and justice.”

For more information, see the State’s summary of cases involving Detective Saldate characterized as impeachment material in the 9th Circuit opinion.
