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.
