Why is a judge not taking the case against former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

admin 0

A court has ordered the former sheriff to return $500,000 he was ordered to pay after he was arrested in 2003.

A federal judge on Friday ordered Arpaio to pay $1.7 million.

A jury in February found Arpaio guilty of criminal contempt after finding he lied about how many Hispanics he had deported.

Arpaio had pleaded not guilty and has appealed the verdict.
