Newsmen in Trouble for Sharing the News


Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey found themselves in trouble with the one-time Sheriff Joe Arpaio. These men were removed from their home and were charged with disclosing information about a grand jury investigation.

Both men were involved with the Village Voice Media newspaper. In fact, one man was the CEO of the paper and the other was an executive editor. They ran a story about a grand jury and they did not know they were the subject on the investigation.

Arpaio was getting annoyed by the way the media criticized his aggressive law performance techniques. He is known for this Tent City where inmates at the country jail live in tents. Since he was in office he has been told what is legal to do and what is not. He was at one time investigated for targeting illegal immigrants, but no evidence was found.

Due to Tent City, Arpaio was charged with violating the rights of people of Latino decent and other minority groups. Arpaio decided to keep on doing his job and ignored the changes. Reporters began to take notice of this new and that is where Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin come in. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Larkin and Lacey Fruntera Fund | Crunchbase

While newspapers were not supposed to write about Arpaio these reported published this information anyway. The men were arrested and must serve 24 days in prison. They filed a lawsuit against Arpaio and wanted to expose more of his practices. They ended up settling for over $3 million.

After this story hit the news Arpaio was not re-elected as Sheriff. He was also charged with contempt of court. President Trump ended up giving Arpaio a pardon, but many say he did this to keep the nationalists on his side. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: and

While Arpaio may be free of charges people are now aware of his abuse of power and it is unlikely he will have a legal or political career in the near future.
