Pinal County Sheriff Says Pinal County Board Of Supervisors Is Hiring Criminals
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is taking on the county government for hiring criminals. Babeu claims the Pinal County Board of Supervisors is hiring friends and family, knowing they are convicted criminals, and giving them access to classified information.
Babeu said right now, there is nothing to stop a felon who is on the county payroll, from looking at your personal information. He wants background checks done on all potential employees before hiring, but the Pinal County Board of Supervisors has so far refused.
