FILE - In this Dec. 18, 2013 file photo, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announces dozens of arrests in a prostitution sting during a news conference at Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Headquarters, in Phoenix. Arpaio and his top aide Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan are required to appear before a federal judge who believes the two have mischaracterized and trivialized the judge's key findings in a racial-profiling decision issued in 2013 against the police agency. The sheriff's office will be required to provide answers Monday, March 24, 2014 to U.S. District Judge Murray Snow about an Oct. 18 training session in which the judge said Sheridan appears to suggest that rank-and-file deputies weren't obliged to make their best efforts to remedy the agency's constitutional violations.
