PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -
A federal judge wants Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to clean up his act about court findings in a racial profiling case.
He ordered Arpaio to issue a statement correcting mischaracterizations his staff has made about court findings.
Last year, the judge said MCSO racially profiled Latinos during immigration and traffic patrols, so the entire staff, including volunteer posse members, will have to read a new summary of key findings within the next two weeks.
Arpaio did issue a statement saying he has directed his staff to read the new summary of key findings and that it would be done in a timely manner.
Last month, the judge presiding over a racial profiling case chided the sheriff and his top aide, telling them he's unimpressed by what he called their apparent "double dealing" for mischaracterizing his findings.
U.S. District Judge Murray Snow said he was disappointed with the inaccurate statements that Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, the top aide for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, made during an October training session with sheriff's deputies.
Sheridan apologized for the inaccurate statements. He said he made them out of frustration with declining morale among his deputies after Snow concluded last year that the agency has racially profiled Latinos.
During an MCSO training session in October, Sheridan appeared to have suggested that deputies weren't obligated to go out of their way to remedy the constitutional violations.
The judge ruled 10 months ago that it was a systemic problem that deputies department-wide racially profiled Latinos from jail intake to patrol crime sweeps and traffic stops.
Because of that ruling, federal monitors were ordered to observe and report back on everything from training to daily operations.
The sheriff has always denied all the allegations and is appealing the ruling.
