Joe Arpaio's Criminal Charge Reshapes Arizona Sheriff's Race

Joe Arpaio's Criminal Charge Reshapes Arizona Sheriff's Race

Sunday, 30 October 2016 11:16 AM

The sheriff of metro Phoenix has won six elections by crafting an image as a law enforcer who targets parents skipping out on child support, animal abusers and immigrants in the country illegally.

Now, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the one targeted in a criminal case. He was charged two weeks before Election Day with contempt of court for defying a judge's order in a racial profiling case.

The election initially centered on the taxpayer costs of the profiling case.

The focus shifted after the U.S. Justice Department announced the day before early voting began that it would prosecute Arpaio for continuing his signature immigration patrols.

A judge later concluded that Arpaio's officers had racially profiled Latinos.

Arpaio's race against Democrat Paul Penzone marks the toughest campaign in his two-decade career.
