Orange County, CA Sheriff Sentenced to 66 Months

Former Orange County Sheriff Joe Carona got whacked with 66 months for witness tampering today in federal court. While he was acquitted of many counts at the four month trial that resulted from lengthy corruption investigation, including counts he misused his office, the judge had no patience for the tampering.

“Lying will not be tolerated in this courtroom, especially by law enforcement, especially by the leading law enforcement official in the county," said [Judge Andrew]Guilford, who held up a copy of the book “The Importance of Being Honest” and read a passage to Carona.
