Citizens group demanding discrepancy of MCSO spending

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Another problem Sheriff Arpaio must deal with is the nearly $100 million in special jail tax funds which an audit said were misspent. A citizens group is demanding a full accounting.

Arpaio's office blames the discrepancy on the county's antiquated accounting system, but a group of long time and vocal critics of Arpaio aren't so sure and they are demanding the Sheriff provide a public explanation of how and why the money was misspent.
