Former OC Sheriff Mike Carona gets 66 months in prison, $125,000 fine

Former Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona was sentenced today to 5 ½ years in federal prison by a judge who said his crime had brought shame to the county and victimized the people he was sworn to serve.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Guilford also ordered Carona to pay a $125,000 fine within one year.

“Lying will not be tolerated in this courtroom,” Guilford told Carona moments before reading his sentence. “Especially by this county’s leading law-enforcement officer.”

The sentencing comes more than three months after a jury convicted Carona of witness tampering, for trying to convince one of his former assistants to lie during a criminal probe.

Lying will not be tolerated in this courtroom...

Apparently the judge doesn't allow Democrats to speak.

Carona was ordered to turn himself in on July 24. That will allow him to attend his son’s high school graduation in June.

Such BS

It's amazing these people get into these government positions and within a couple of years they become corrupt to the bone.

Just amazing.

If this happens with the county's top cop, you can imagine what is happening at all levels of government.

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with you my friend. "Amish Paradise" is the best.
