For those following the continuing saga of Joe Arpaio v. federal judge G. Murray Snow, a remarkable twist in the case was reported by the Phoenix New Times. Arpaio requested the court to appoint a defense lawyer for him! But then a spokesperson said that wasn’t what happened. Does he indeed need a criminal defense lawyer?
You be the judge (no pun intended):
- Arpaio Asks Federal Judge to Find Him a Criminal Defense Lawyer
- Arpaio’s Request for Court-Appointed Lawyer Not What It Seems, Sheriff’s Official Says
- Arpaio May Have Covered Up Video Evidence, Can Bring Lawyer to Hearing, Judge Rules
The hearing is tomorrow, December 4.
