    Joe Arpaio: I'd accept a pardon from Trump

    Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was found guilty in late July of contempt of court after failing to stop racial profiling practices, said he would accept a pardon from President Donald Trump.

    “Whatever the president wants me to do, I would support him,” Arpaio said to his state’s largest paper, The Arizona Republic, earlier this week. “If he needs help with anything, of course I’m going to help him.”

    Arpaio, who served as Maricopa County’s sheriff for more than two decades, is a Trump supporter and spoke at the then-nominee’s events last year. Arpaio, however, is not sure whether the president is aware of his current legal situation.

    “I’m not going to ask him,” Arpaio said of a possible presidential pardon, and he would not disclose whether the two spoke since Inauguration Day. “I’m very careful. I don’t go around bragging.”

    The White House has not mentioned Arpaio’s case since Trump took office. The 85-year-old faces up to six months behind bars.

    He damn sure deserves one! This was due to Obozo's meddling in LEGAL proceedings. I still can't believe he was found guilty for doing the job and upholding the law

    Wouldn't accepting a pardon be an admission of guilt? I thought the former Sheriff's fight was still ongoing.

    Previous article says he and his legal team will be filing an appeal, at least at that time.

    It was a surprise this worked out this way.

    My daughter lived in Phoenix for about 3 years, and we were fortunate to have an extended stay there some years ago.

    Not many seemed to like Sheriff Joe - in a personal way - BUT they sure wanted him in office as a sheriff. They liked what he did.
