Arpaio to get ruling on attendance at meeting

A judge is expected to rule Monday morning on whether Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has to attend a meeting to explain why his office hasn’t handed over records that the Board of Supervisors had subpoenaed.

Arpaio asked the judge to throw out the subpoena that supervisors issued in an attempt to see whether the sheriff had misused taxpayer money.

The board contends it can hold Arpaio in civil contempt and impose fines if he or a sheriff’s representative doesn’t attend the board’s meeting Monday afternoon.

Arpaio’s lawyers argue that the law giving the board subpoena power is unconstitutional and that the board has a conflict of interest in dealing with the sheriff.
