    Feds found no crimes in Arpaio’s handling of inmate cash

    Prosecutors say they found no state or federal criminal violations in the travel spending and handling of inmates’ cash by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office.

    Dennis Burke, the U.S. Attorney for Arizona, told a county official in a letter Monday that the cash that inmates have in their possession when they are arrested was mostly accounted for and that there was no evidence of embezzlement.

    But Burke said prosecutors believe that the sheriff’s office’s handling of inmate cash between 2006 and 2008 was questionable and suggested that Arpaio’s office may have violated its financial duties as a manager of money.

    Jack MacIntyre, deputy chief for Arpaio, said Monday’s letter is another instance where prosecutors have cleared the sheriff’s office. In June, federal prosecutors said they wouldn’t be prosecuting sheriff’s officials over extradition spending.

    Southern Arizona has largely served as a model for the program, with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio acting as a sort of paradigm of local law enforcement participation in federal immigration enforcement. According to ICE statistics, Arizona sports the third highest number of deportations through Secure Communities of any U.S. state at over 15,000, and 89 percent of those were deported from Arpaio’s district. In fact, only one U.S. county, Los Angeles, Calif., has had more Secure Communities deportations than Maricopa.

    That's great news! They didn't have a case to begin with, so what did they spend trying to cut down Arpaio with the courts?
