Phoenix, ARIZONA – Former Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio, who gained national prominence for his tough stance against illegal immigration, was found guilty on Monday of criminal contempt for violating the terms of a 2011 court order in a racial profiling case.

Arpaio, 85, who lost his bid for re-election as Maricopa County sheriff last November after 24 years in office, faces a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a fine when he is sentenced on the misdemeanor offense on Oct. 5.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Monday found former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio guilty of criminal contempt of court, the culmination of a federal trial that was years in the making, Arizona Family reported.

The six-term sheriff, who was voted out of office in November 2016, is known for, among other things, cracking down on illegal immigration and using controversial “crime suppression sweeps” to round up those suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. Those operations, which went on for years, are what landed him in court.

Although a judge ordered Arpaio to stop the traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, the self-styled “America’s toughest sheriff” did not. Arpaio continued to run those operations for nearly 18 months after that order.

Last May, Judge Murray Snow found Arpaio, now 85, and three of his top aides in civil contempt.

In a strongly worded 162-page document, Snow wrote that Arpaio’s office violated court orders intended to end racial profiling practices by his department.

“They have demonstrated a persistent disregard for the orders of this Court, as well as an intention to violate and manipulate the laws and policies regulating their conduct,” Snow said.

Arpaio, although he had admitted to civil contempt before that ruling, has maintained that he did not intentionally violate the court order.

This is such bullshit.

Screw liberals. Freaking scumbags.

God Bless.
