to a vertically-structured prosecutorial system, Lando leverages the resources
of the Office to work more closely with law enforcement as cases are processed,
closely monitor the chain of custody of evidence, and enable prosecutors to
oversee cases from crime scene to sentencing. Additionally by altering the
philosophy of the Office of the Pinal County Attorney, Lando also seeks to
prosecute individuals suspected in crimes involving mandatory sentencing. More

cases involving individuals with high threat potential removing suspected
dangerous and suspected sexual criminals from our streets quicker.
