Judge May Keep Sheriff Joe Conviction Despite Trump Pardon may refuse to rescind Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s conviction for ignoring a court order,
[link to dailycaller.com]


A U.S. district judge may refuse to rescind Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s conviction for ignoring a court order, despite President Donald Trump’s pardon, according to a Thursday filing.

President Trump pardoned Arpaio Aug. 25, but U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton said the federal government would need to convince her to drop Arpaio’s conviction. According to Nixon v. United States, a presidential pardon only voids punishment for a crime — it does not necessarily rescind a conviction, the Washington Post reported. If federal attorneys fail to convince her, Bolton said she will simply drop the criminal case against Arpaio but let his conviction stand.

Arpaio was convicted in July of criminal contempt for defying a federal court order to stop detaining individuals suspected of being in the country illegally. The former Arizona sheriff is known for his tough-on-crime stance, and he supported Trump during the presidential campaign.

Bolton has scheduled a hearing for next month, and Arpaio may be able to argue his case without opposition. His former federal prosecutors have backed his call for the conviction to be dropped, according to AZ Central, but Bolton claimed the federal government didn’t cite any existing precedent to support their request to drop the conviction.

Bolton was the judge who handed down Arpaio’s conviction this summer.

“Not only did Defendant abdicate responsibility,” Bolton wrote at the time, “he announced to the world and to his subordinates that he was going to continue business as usual no matter who said otherwise.”

It doesn't matter if the judge rescinds or not.

Look, it's very simple as there is the Nixon precedent. The Supreme Court ruled:

-Offering a pardon does not indicate guilt or innocence.
-Accepting the presidential pardon is an admission of guilt.

Judge doing same thing he accuses Arpio of. Ignoring an order based on personal feelings.

Can't have it both ways, fuckhead.

but he can (or his dept heads can) remove them from the bench and replace them.
Especially for failing to act properly.
Something this "judge" should consider carefully.

For all practical intents and purposes you are correct and being the 'stick it in your ass' kind of guy he is, Arpaio probably already has the conviction nicely framed on his wall in a place of honor right next to Trumps pardon.
