The Arizona Fair Crime Act did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated state statute. This measure would have mandated that persons charged with a crime could only be punished under one section of the law. The measure would have also mandated that individuals be charged uniformly for breeches of the law regardless of the socioeconomic status of the offender or victim. The proposal was introduced by the group called, Fox Petitions Supporting Fair Crime Act, as shown on the Arizona Secretary of State's website.[1]

Path to the ballot

Since the measure was categorized as an initiated state statute, supporters must have collected 172,809 signatures by the July 5, 2012 petition drive deadline in order for the proposal to have been placed on the ballot.

According to reports, the measure did not file signatures by the deadline.[2]
