Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio found guilty of ‘contempt of court’

One judge wasn’t too happy with Arpaio’s antics, charging the law enforcement veteran with ‘criminal contempt’ after disobeying a 2011 ruling

MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz. (INTELLIHUB) — Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio claims that he did not intentionally go against a previous ruling by a federal judge when he turned illegals over to authorities.

In 2011 a judge ruled that ‘just because someone is in the country illegally doesn’t mean that law enforcement can arrest them.’

America’s toughest sheriff told authorities that he did not authorize DHS or ICE to turn illegal aliens over to U.S. Border Patrol and claimed that the judge’s ruling wasn’t very clear.

Arpaio was charged with ‘criminal contempt of court.’

The American Civil Liberties Union supporters say that they can’t wait until the sheriff is behind bars.

“Experts believe that he will not go to jail,” a Fox News staffer reports.
