Court documents: Arpaio admits he failed to follow judge's orders

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Chief Deputy have admitted to a judge they could be found in contempt of court, for repeatedly violating court orders.

It all stems from a 2007 class-action lawsuit where the judge ruled in favor of several Latino drivers who say they were racially profiled.

Broad changes were supposed to be put into place, but now there is evidence the Sheriff's Office failed to follow the judge's orders.

In court paperwork, the Sheriff and Chief Deputy admit at least three times that they failed to follow the judge's orders.

A hearing where deputies would have to testify is scheduled in mid-April.
