County Attorney canines; therapy dogs help victims
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - The Maricopa County Attorney has gone to the dogs, but it's not what you think. They're therapy dogs that are brought in by the MCAO to help traumatize crime victims and witnesses to gain the courage to testify in court.
It is a program you've probably never heard about, and it is growing.
The program is 5-years-old and a new dog was added to the group. So now there are three very friendly dogs working for the county attorney's office, sometimes they're even in the courtroom.
