Sheriff Mike Carona and his wife Debbie, both in handcuffs, were ordered to pay $20,000 bail and will be released later today from federal lockup.

During the proceeding Carona kept his head high and his jaw square, and very respectfully said responded, “Yes sir,” in response to each of the judge’s four questions.

Federal prosecutor Brett Sagel argued that Carona should surrender his firearm because he’s under federal indictment. Carona’s attorney, Dean Steward, argued that Carona’s life has been threatened on numerous occasions and he needs his weapon.

Judge Robert Block disagreed with the government and said Carona can keep his firearm.


What an embarrassment this POS is to the law enforcement profession. I've met him a handful of times and he is one of the biggest egomaniacs I've ever met. He is proving this again as, the right thing to do right now is step down from office but he is refusing to do so. As you'll read in the quoted article, not only are he and his wife under indictment, but so is his mistress. As I said, he's an embarrassment to my profession.

Am I missing something? What did they do? I didn't see any mention of this in the article.

Acc. to the website mentioned above the sheriff, his wife and his mistress have been accused of corruption accepting bribes and using his position to enrich himself:

Quote:

The U.S. Attorney's office indictment accuses Carona and close associates of exploiting Carona�s position for personal benefit, including accepting cash and appointing to the position of assistant sheriff an unqualified businessman who paid bribes.

You haven't met our Sheriff in Maricopa County have you?

Earlier this year the Sheriff in Curry County, Oregon was indicted on have sex with underage girls, he refused to resigned until he was convicted by a jury. Ditto with the Apache County, Arizona sheriff was indicted on fraud type charges, again wouldn't resign until after he plead guilty. Must be the power.

Sheriff Joe's recent attempt at having the AG arrest reporters for publishing his address is another line to his "wonderful" resume. They just dropped the charges in another show of incompetence.

That was the county attorney that had the sheriff arrest the reporters? What happen to the 1st amendment? Wouldn't it be nice if the US Attorney got the guts to go after him; oh yea, President Bush fired the US Attorney because he didn't go after the death penalty enough!

 checkmark  Sheriff Joe goes way to far with ALOT of things that most sheriffs around the nation wouldn't even think about doing. Some things Sheriff Joe does just makes the hair on my back stand up and gives me the chills down my spine.  no
