Prosecutor: Arpaio-Thomas cases meritless

A review of cases conducted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas are without merit.

That is the conclusion by Navajo County Attorney Brad Carlyon after he and his staff reviewed nine cases of alleged corruption by various Maricopa County officials.

In a letter to U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke, Carlyon concluded criminal prosecutions against various supervisors, judges and other county officials conducted by Arpaio and Thomas were not justified.

Thomas tells The Arizona Republic the conclusion drawn by the Navajo County attorney raises serious questions about the fairness being shown Sheriff Arpaio and the prosecutors who in good faith investigated these matters.
