Newly appointed Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel said she’s open to taking steps on criminal justice reform, both by making changes within her office and by pushing for reforms at the legislature.

“I think that this is not strictly a legislative solution. This is looking internally at how we process cases. It’s working with our stakeholders in the community. And it’s a more holistic approach that I’d like to take,” Adel told reporters on Thursday during her first press conference as county attorney.

Adel said she has not yet determined what steps she might take in that direction. She said she’ll work with stakeholders on reform issues.
