Arpaio’s lawyer to meet with Justice Department

An attorney for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will meet Tuesday with U.S. Justice Department officials to discuss the federal agency’s demand for records in a civil rights investigation.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office is being investigated for alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having an English-only policy in his jails that allegedly discriminates against people with limited English skills.

Arpaio believes the inquiry is focused on his immigration patrols.

The police agency has refused to give many records requested by the Justice Department.

The Justice Department has threatened to sue if it doesn’t get the records.
