I read the indictment...Appears to be a massive paper trail of evidence, indicating lots of corruption and improprieties.
I’d bet Carona will resign, and will be prosecuted and found guilty of at least some of the charges listed in the indictment. Way too much there.
20,000? and they put up what 10%. Symbolism. But where can a sheriff hide?
I won’t be betting against you.
If they release Sheriff Carona’s mug shot photo, post it.
That would be worth seeing.
His attorney said the Sheriff was not happy about being handcuffed and put in shackles...I can only imagine....
Can someone help me with the headline? How can you be ordered to pay bail?
This is my sheriff and I’m not proud.
I’m not saying his guilty, just saying there is a lot in the indictment, and would appear they have lengthy paper trail of evidence. IMO, I don’t think he’ll walk from this.
I really don’t want to say he’s guilty either, but I have a sinking feeling about this and it’s based on something that goes beyond the headlines.
I read it the same way, but I think Chode put it in perspective.
You gotta like someone with a name like Chode. :)
I’m afraid to ask.

Gee, I remember him from the time the little girl was kidnapped and murdered. He did a great job of catching the killer. He seemed like a great person.
Sorry to hear this now.
I already looked it up in the urban dictionary. Nuffsed!
Hey ES word on the street is he is going down big time It may even touch our Gopbernator
Boy, does this ever suck. :(
You can't, more stupidity from the MSM. The judge set bail at $20K and $10K which really means $2,000 and $1,000.
Interesting article from the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa Daily Pilot about former Under Sheriff Haidl. Carona’s goose is cooked. It looks like this guy who posed as Mr. Goody Two-shoes when he ran to replace former Sheriff Brad Gates, another ego sleeze ball is about to head for the slammer.
Ah, I’d forgotten The Daily “Plot”. :)
Yea, but they lose the 2,000/1,000 even if they show up for trial. If they put the the 20k/10k they'd get it back after the trial.
True, but I wonder if you can write the money you pay to a bail bondsman off as legal fees.
I'd be surprised if you can write off legal fees in a criminal case, at least one not involving your economic activity.
That POS, I never liked that guy, I never trusted him. For all I know he had bribes, girls, and everything else going on in that office.
But thats history. We wanna go on with a new Sheriff in town, ok.......you dont?.....make a move. :)
Your screen name, by the way -- Eddie Haskell was my fave character on LITB. IMO, the actor who played him, Ken (now I've gone and forgotten his last name) somethingorother, was the best kid actor in the cast because he was always able to somehow make Eddie sympathetic, even though Eddie was a primo Schmuck most of the time. To create pathos (a little bit of sadness or depth in otherwise shallow comic characters, as I define it) in the rest of the characters (with the exception of Lumpy!) would have come relatively easy, but to do it successfully with Eddie Haskell, as Ken whats-his-name did, took real acting skills. If you know him, tell him THANKS for some great TV!
