Romley concerned over Pinal County’s MCSO probe

Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley is raising concerns about Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu’s investigation into Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office.

Romley believes Babeu is conducting only an administrative investigation into allegations of misconduct against three members of Arpaio’s command staff, as opposed to a criminal probe. Romley also says he’s concerned about who will bear the investigative costs.

The probe into Maricopa County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy David Hendershott, Deputy Chief Larry Black and Capt. Joel Fox is based on a 63-page memo written by a longtime member of Arpaio’s command staff. The memo alleges years of misconduct among the three, some of which could be criminal.

The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday that Romley outlined his concerns in a letter to Babeu.
