Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 85, is set to go on trial Monday for allegedly disobeying a judge’s order to stop traffic patrols that targeted illegal aliens.

The longtime sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix has been charged with criminal contempt-of-court for ignoring a judge’s order in racial-profiling cases.

The eight-day trial in federal court in Phoenix will determine if the retired lawman is guilty of misdemeanor contempt of court for disobeying a judge’s 2011 order to stop racially profiling Latinos in traffic stops.

The former six-term sheriff, who dubbed himself “America’s toughest sheriff,” has acknowledged defying the judge’s order in a racial profiling lawsuit by prolonging the patrols for months. But he insists it was not intentional. To win a conviction, prosecutors must prove he violated the order on purpose, Fox News reports.

If convicted, Arpaio could face up to six months in jail, though lawyers who have followed his case doubt that a man of his age would be put behind bars.

Unlike other local police leaders who left immigration enforcement to U.S. authorities, Arpaio’s department made hundreds of arrests in traffic patrols that sought out immigrants and business raids in which his officers targeted immigrants who used fraudulent IDs to get jobs.

That’s exactly what law enforcement is supposed to do but Obama’s Department of Justice has gone after the good Sheriff from day one for simply enforcing laws that we have in place and now.

His immigration powers were eventually stripped away by Obama’s liberal courts and federal government, culminating with the 2013 ruling that Arpaio’s officers profiled Latinos.

Arpaio’s defense centers around what his attorneys said were weaknesses in the court order that failed to acknowledge times when deputies would detain immigrants and later hand them over to federal authorities.

Arpaio’s attorney, Jack Wilenchik, said he is being charged with cooperating with U.S. immigration officials although the Trump administration encourages that.

This is really just a fight about immigration law and what it means,” Wilenchik said. “And Arpaio is trying to do what a good cop does, which is to enforce the law.”


It is not clear if Arpaio will testify.

What a bunch of crap this whole thing is.

We have Obama and liberals to blame for this.

God Bless.
