PHOENIX — A judge presiding over a racial profiling case against an Arizona sheriff’s office chided the sheriff and his top aide on Monday, telling them he’s unimpressed by what he called their apparent “double dealing” for mischaracterizing his findings.
U.S. District Judge Murray Snow says he was disappointed with the inaccurate statements that Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, the top aide for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (ahr-PEYE’-oh), made during an October training session with sheriff’s deputies
Sheridan apologized for the inaccurate statements. He says he made them out of frustration with declining morale among his deputies after Snow concluded last year that the agency has racially profiled Latinos.
Sheridan and Arpaio were called into court Monday to answer questions about the training session.
Arpaio sat beside Sheridan in court, but didn’t speak before the judge.
The sheriff has appealed the judge’s racial profiling ruling.
