Former AZ Maricopa Sheriff Joe Found Guilty of Criminal Contempt of Court-Read Court Doc

After a 5 day trial in June and July the Department of Justice prosecutors presented evidence that Arpaio had intentionally disregarded a federal judges order. 
Ordering Arpaio to cease illegal immigration round-ups. Bolton wrote in the ruling. "Because the Court finds that Defendant willfully violated an order of the court, it finds Defendant guilty of criminal contempt." Sentencing will begin October 5th, 2017.

  1. The series of US exhibits presented in the closing arguments against Arpaio, before Judge Susan Bolton, in my opinion, were the exhibits that had the most impact on Arpaio as to his guilt. The series of Arpaio video exhibits found in Exhibit 37 were, to say the least, devastating and revealed Arpaio's mindset in his own words. Arpaio's legal team did not meet the deadline to present written objections to the admission of Exhibit 37 in court. Judge Bolton's ruling of "guilty", based on Exhibit 37, was justified in my opinion.
