An Insight into Larkin & Lacey

On October 18th, 2007 Jim Latin and Michael Lacey, both journalists were arrested from their homes by the Maricopa County selective Enforcement Agency of Arizona under the orders of the sheriff, Joe Arpaio.

Larkin & Lacey were given subpoenas from the grand jury under allegations of disclosing the details of the grand jury investigation on their newspaper, Phoenix publishers. The journalists of Village Voice Media had been under investigations by the jury in conjunction with the sheriff.

The arrests as to be seen later were malicious attempts by the sheriff to punish the two journalists who had been working for a media company, The Village Voices that was continually criticizing his actions and turning the public against him.

He had gained the reputation of undermining the Latino immigrants in Arizona. Joe Arpaio was nicknamed ‘Americas toughest sheriff,’ and he had served his county for 24 years following six re-elections by his county members.
