SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO CONVICTED IN FEDERAL COURT

Former Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio,85, was convicted of the criminal charge of disobeying a court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants according to NBC News.

The former Sheriff faces 6-months in jail for the misdemeanor conviction but attorneys who have followed the case doubt that he will serve any time at all.

The former Sheriff had been overwhelmingly popular with Maricopa community.

He and his deputies were accused multiple times of abusing Latino-Americans and those he suspected were illegal immigrants based merely on their skin color.

The Sheriff came out strongly from Donald Trump in election 2016, whose platforms and beliefs about Latino-Americans and immigrants largely matched his own.
