Hendershott set for Friday deposition in lawsuit

The No. 2 official in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled to be deposed Friday for the second time in a lawsuit that accuses the agency of racially profiling Hispanics in immigration patrols.

Chief Deputy David Hendershott was first deposed in February.

Hendershott is on paid leave after an administrative investigation was launched into a memo by a top sheriff’s manager who alleged unethical behavior by Hendershott and two other officials.

Hendershott will be the last of nine sheriff’s officials to recently be deposed in the lawsuit.

The sheriff’s office denies the racial profiling allegations and says people pulled over in the patrols were approached because deputies had probable cause to believe they had committed crimes.

  1. This guy wouldn’t know the truth if it was dancing the two-step on the tip of his nose. Hendershott is a perfect example of the old adage about cops..if they hadn’t become cops they would have become criminals.
