What Is Maricopa County's New Protocol For Handling Sex Assaults?

Arizona is developing broader protocol on the handling of sexual assaults.

Late last year, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office introduced a new protocol manual for sex assaults for the first time in Arizona.

And, earlier this month county prosecutors began a conversation about the need to change the conditions of release and terms of probation for people convicted of sex trafficking.

Rachel Mitchell is the Special Victims Division director at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
