Barnett’s trail dates are scheduled for December 9 and December 17, 2013 and he is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
Pinal County Attorney Voyles said, “Within our communities, we must root out the worst of the worst and administer justice. My prosecutors continue to take those accused of dangerous crimes to trial and, being a county with a now 90% conviction rate, the Pinal County Attorney’s Office continues to match the severity of threats individuals pose with an equal vigor for prosecution.”
