The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office confirmed a complaint was under review by the office’s investigative unit. The office spokeswoman called it a personnel matter and declined to make the complaint public.

“I can confirm there is a complaint,” Amanda Steele said. “Yes, it is being looked at.”

Steele said a County Attorney’s Office supervisor was “provided information by an employee they oversee, of a situation that occurred between Mr. Martinez and that employee.”

Steele said the interaction took place and was reported within the past 30 days.

Newly appointed Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel, who took office Oct. 3, declined comment.

Martinez did not respond to messages left on his office phone and cellphone. The office said he would not comment on the issue.
