Deputy who stole documents from defense attorney goes to jail

A few days ago, I posted and commented on a video of a deputy stealing a document from a defense attorney in the middle of a court proceeding in Arizona. (See here and here). As you may recall, the deputy was found guilty of contempt for his actions and was ordered to issue a public apology. He refused and has been sentenced to serve some jail time.

The deputy's conduct was outrageous and now comes word that the County Attorney has agreed to appeal the decision of the court and defend the deputy's conduct. Prof. Jonathan Turley criticizes this decision severely here.

For more on the story, go here.
