In Maricopa County, Arizona, a man on death row is in need of volunteer counsel for his state post-conviction proceedings.
In 2001 the client was sentenced to death after a jury found the existence of three aggravating factors in his case. Since the Arizona Supreme Court issued its mandate in 2006, the client has been unrepresented by counsel.
The client was the first in Maricopa County to be sentenced under Arizona’s current death penalty statute, which states that juries, not judges, decide whether the defendant will receive the death penalty.
Experienced capital defenders in Arizona have proven to be an excellent resource for firms who are handling their first death penalty case.
