MCSO Set To Vote On Settlement For Arpaio-Era Lawsuit
The Maricopa County Board Of Supervisors could vote to settle a lawsuit filed against former Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The case is one of many lawsuits filed against Arpaio, now a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat, over the treatment of inmates in county jails during his 24 years as sheriff.
The family of a mentally ill man alleges he died after being beaten and shot with a stun gun by law enforcement officers in a county jail.
Lawyers previously disclosed that Maricopa County had tentatively resolved the lawsuit, but the $7 million payout amount wasn't publicly revealed until it was listed on a Board of Supervisors agenda posted Friday.
The settlement is scheduled for a vote Wednesday.
