APAAC pleased to nominate Diebolt for his 23 years of service
Mark Diebolt’s prosecutorial career began with PCAO in March 1997. He is currently assigned to the Major Crimes Bureau where he tries homicides, gun crimes, and gang crimes. Mark was assigned to the Violent Unit as a gang prosecutor in 2004; a large percentage of his casework has involved gang-related prosecutions. The prosecution of gang crimes – with witnesses who recant testimonies, intimidations by gang members, and unsympathetic victims -- presents a host of challenges for prosecutors. While the Office does not track the number of gang-related cases, during his 21 years with PCAO, Mark has tried an almost unparalleled number of felony jury trials – 313. Of those, Mark has undertaken 44 homicide trials. For his commitment to the pursuit of justice, The Pima County Attorney’s Office is pleased to nominate Mark Diebolt for APAAC’s 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award.
