Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s presidential pardon accepted by federal judge

Arpaio attorney Jack Wilenchik

By Michael Kiefer | The Republic

A U.S. District Court judge in Phoenix has accepted the presidential pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

At the request of both Arpaio defense attorneys and U.S. Department of Justice lawyers, Judge Susan Bolton dismissed the guilty verdict against Arpaio with prejudice, meaning it can never be tried again.

Arpaio had been found guilty in July of criminal contempt for “flagrant disregard” of a judge’s order.

Arpaio attorney Jack Wilenchik asked that all rulings and orders in the case be dismissed as well. Bolton took that request under advisement.

Arpaio did not attend the hearing.
