Arpaio Agrees To Cooperate With The DOJ

Almost one year after being sued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for his failure to cooperate with agency’s civil rights investigation of his office, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has “allowed the Justice Department to review hundreds of thousands of pages of documents and conduct more than 220 interviews of county staff and inmates.” Arpaio’s move comes shortly after two of his top aides were forced to resign over corruption and abuse of power allegations and one week following the arrest of three of his employees who have been accused of participating in a drug and human trafficking ring.
