The head of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office's Asset Recovery Bureau, Peter Spaw, has admitted to working on a racketeering lawsuit he knew was unsupported by evidence.
|Peter Spaw, a high-ranking deputy county attorney, could receive two years' probation of his law license and a $17,060 fine now that he's admitted to committing injustices related to the 2009 filing of a racketeering lawsuit against county officials, judges, and lawyers.|
Yet the county attorney, Bill Montgomery, won't say a word about it.
Does the admission and potential two years' probation of his law license for knowingly working on a bad racketeering case impact his job, which presumably deals with racketeering cases?
"We're not commenting on it. I'm sorry," says Montgomery's spokesman, Jerry Cobb.
UPDATE: We clarified this article, which previously indicated the two years' probation was a done deal. In fact, the proposed punishment must be approved by the state Supreme Court's Disciplinary Judge.
