Isaac's Story

A year ago, Isaac Benitez was murdered by two young men. The Pima County Attorney’s Office gave both defendants probation.

This tragedy highlights the increased violence in Pima County and the inability of the Pima County Attorney’s Office to hold defendants accountable for violent and dangerous conduct.

In the words of the victim family, “Isaac received a death sentence. We received a life sentence. The defendants received probation.”

This unjust outcome has intensified the demand for a renewed focus on holding violent and dangerous offenders accountable and a call to action for the voters of Pima County to elect a seasoned prosecutor who understands the balance between justice, rehabilitation, and community safety. The victim family is using #justiceforisaacbenitez to bring awareness to this tragedy.
