Mohave County administrator Mike Hendrix suspended Public Defender Harry Moore and placed him on leave last Wednesday. He’s asking the Board of Supervisors next week to support his recommendation to terminate the employment of the man who heads up an office that represents indigent defendants.

County officials are unable to comment on the firing recommendation as personnel matters are confidential.

Moore started working for the county in July, 2013. Attorney Alex Bolobonoff is heading up the Public Defender’s office at this point in time.
