Prosecutor Juan Martinez appeals termination, saying effort is ‘a vendetta against him’

By Lauren Castle | Arizona Republic 

Juan Martinez is the target of an office vendetta, with the Maricopa County attorney’s chief deputy leading an effort to discipline Martinez twice for the same conduct, according to an appeal filed by his attorney. 

The high-profile prosecutor is challenging the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office decision to fire him after a 30-year career there. 

Martinez’s appeal of his termination was released Monday by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in response to a public records request by The Arizona Republic.

The document, filed by Martinez’s attorney Thomas Brown, argues that the prosecutor had been disciplined after allegations he sexually harassed female law clerks and a female deputy county attorney from 2007 to 2017. He received a written reprimand and completed a recommended sexual harassment training session.

“Mr. Martinez rightfully believed that after accepting the discipline, he should be able to move forward with his distinguished career,” Brown wrote.
