PHOENIX (AP) -
A lawyer recently added to former Sheriff Joe Arpaio's legal team is seeking a 60-day postponement of the lawman's April 25 trial on a criminal contempt-of-court charge for defying a court order in a racial profiling case.
Attorney Mark Goldman says he has another trial the week before Arpaio's trial and that he faces a scheduling conflict because his son's bar mitzvah is scheduled for April 29.
