Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel penned a letter Tuesday doubling down in saying she would not resign following a request to do so from multiple prosecutors.

The original letter goes in-depth about Adel's struggles with alcoholism. Her top staff say she has not kept her promises to them and has lashed out when confronted about her problems.
