Stay of disbarment order is denied for Aubuchon

The Arizona Supreme Court’s presiding disciplinary judge has denied to stay a disbarment order for former Maricopa County prosecutor Lisa Aubuchon.

Aubuchon was disbarred last month for her role in pushing three failed investigations of public officials in court.

A motion filed April 25 asked the presiding disciplinary judge to delay Aubuchon’s punishment so she can continue to practice law pending a decision on her appeal.

Aubuchon and ex-County Attorney Andrew Thomas were disbarred April 10 by a disciplinary panel for ethical misconduct over a years-long battle with Maricopa County officials.

The panel found Aubuchon and Thomas had broken criminal intimidation and perjury laws in knowingly bringing false bribery charges against a judge.

Thomas has maintained that he was trying to root out corruption in pursuing the three cases.

  1. Disbarred “charging” prosecutor that has destroyed thousands of lives, families and children in Arizona, needs to be given what she handed out to others. “hang em in the town square” mentality, mantra exspoused by disgraced, disbarred former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas. Where are their mug shots on the ‘internet billboards”?
