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.

WATCH: McCloskeys Hand Postcard of St. Louis Standoff to BLM Activist Harassing Them

Baller.

Published

The couple that was harassed by Black Lives Matter rioters in an armed standoff at their Saint Louis home handed a BLM activist a postcard of them from the event.

The harasser chants “Abolish the Suburbs” in a repetitive fashion. It seems to escape her that the McCloskeys don’t even live in a suburb, and that their residence is well within the confines of urban Saint Louis.

The McCloskeys were actually picking up some postcards that document their standoff with trespassing rioters from a print shop when they were assailed by the loud individual. Check them out, they’re pretty cool.

Mark McCloskey actually handed off a copy of the postcard on the left to the belligerent woman chanting platitudes at them!

Many conservative patriots and gun rights supporters are surely hoping that they’ll manage to find a way onto the McCloskey’s Christmas mailing lists, as these signed postcards will likely become a collector’s item.

The McCloskeys are still facing a sham prosecution from a Soros-funded Democrat city prosecutor who has consistently refused to charge criminal rioters for acts of property destruction and violence committed during Black Lives Matter rioters. They’ve declined to back down and accept a plea deal, and new revelations of the charges filed against them show a pattern of serious misconduct and politically charged decisions on the part of Saint Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner.
