Criminal contempt case against Arpaio sent to another judge

In this Dec. 5, 2011 file photo, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, center, listens as Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, right, discusses the latest in the document release on his office's handling of many sexual assault cases over the years in El Mirage, Ariz., during a news conference in Phoenix. A lawyer for the longtime sheriff of the Phoenix metropolitan area will urge a judge Friday, July 22, 2016, to recommend against a criminal contempt-of-court case for the lawman for ignoring court orders in a racial profiling case. Sheriff Arpaio and his second-in-command Sheridan were found in civil contempt two months ago for intentionally ignoring an order to stop their immigration patrols.
