A Pinal County Health and Human Services employee was charged with one felony count of a conflict of interest on Dec. 18 following an investigation into acts she committed in 2005, according to a Superior Court indictment.
Irma Potter was investigated by the sheriff's office and will face prosecution by the county attorney's office, said county spokesman Joe Pyritz.
The indictment says Potter knowingly or intentionally violated an Arizona law that forces county employees who have a "substantial interest in any contract, sale, purchase or service" to make the interest known in public records. The law also states the employee must refrain from participating as an officer or employee for the particular interest.
The acts were committed between Nov. 1 and Dec. 18, 2005, the indictment shows. Pyritz did not release any further details in the case.
