PHOENIX (AP) The political career of Joe Arpaio ended last year when the six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for cracking down on illegal immigration and housing inmates in tents outside in the desert heat was trounced in an election that focused on his own legal troubles.
Now, the 85-year-old who called himself Americas toughest sheriff will face his day of reckoning in court for defying a judges order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.
Arpaios trial starts Monday on a criminal contempt-of-court charge for prolonging the patrols for nearly a year and a half. The judge later found that Arpaios officers had racially profiled Latinos.

Trump needs to give him a pardon. Then award a medal of freedom.
Trump should pardon him.
Does Joe get a jury of twelve or just the judge?
Just amazing. Going to trial for enforcing the nations immigration laws.
AP = All Propaganda
Dont believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.
"Day of reckoning" AKA DOING HIS FREAKING JOB!!!
“A few weeks later, he told a TV interviewer that deputies were still detaining immigrants in the country illegally.”
I don’t believe that line his correct as Arpaio would have never admitted to illegal activity.
Kudos and best wishes to Arpaio.
You following all of this?
you could take out the prosecutor..
using the law as a cudgel can be stopped by removing the lawyers
President Trump pardon him if convicted.
Where are you Donald?
“President Trump pardon him if convicted.”
Why not pardon prior to the federal trial?
Sheriff Joe is 85... Trump won’t allow him to die in jail... pardon is coming.
Trump has made no noises concerning the miscarriage of justice in the Bundy matters. He has not pushed for justice in the matter of targeting TeaParty groups by the IRS. Hillary Clinton is walking scott-free. No one is going after Lynch. This president is not interested in justice at all. Why should Sheriff Joe be any exception?
President Trump can pardon him
