Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.

STALKERS: Black Lives Matter Returns to Home of St. Louis Couple After Armed Confrontation

It’s harassment at this point.

Published

on

Protestors of the Black Lives Matter movement returned to the premises of the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey on Saturday, a Saint Louis couple who confronted rioters of the movement who trespassed near their property last week. The McCloskeys had been peacefully armed on their own property, but nonetheless became the targets of a left-wing hate campaign for refusing to bow in submission to the threatening rioters.

The crowd of ‘protestors’ appeared to refrain from trespassing during Saturday’s harassment of the couple, instead chanting taunts in the direction the McCloskey home from behind a wall gating off the private community in which they live.

A protestor of the mob recounted his grievances with the couple, castigating them for insufficient support of the previous trespassing rioters.

They love black lives for what, but they got a gate? They installed a new gate… But they’re supporters of Black Lives Matter? They thought we was an angry mob, but they support BLM? They said we was gone go into his house, kill him, enslave [unintelligible] and his dog…

A new fence appears to have been installed around the McCloskey home after the confrontation, and the house is being protected by a team of private security agents.

It’s somewhat curious that the McCloskeys claim to support the movement after the harassment they’ve faced at the hands of the movement, with a previous press release the couple issued only condemning the rioters they faced off in half-hearted terms.

Saint Louis Democrat Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has confirmed she’s “investigating” the couple for merely possessing guns within the confines of their own property, insinuating that they were somehow threatening peaceful protestors after they instructed trespassing rioters to depart from private property. It’ll be difficult to find an argument from criminally charging the couple for the most fundamental and non-violent self-defense behavior available, but that won’t stop the partisan liberal.
