Arpaio Five News
After five months on trial, Issa Emadi, who was charged with a class 6 felony for aggravated assault on a cop and aggravated assault with intent to injure, took a plea deal for a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct. He faces no jail time, a $500 fine and unsupervised probation.
As for Garyn Klasek and Claire Brock, the state has decided to pick up their cases again after initially scratching them. Garyn is being charged with a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct and a felony for resisting arrest and was offered a plea deal for a misdemeanor for resisting arrest, which he rejected. Claire is being charged with resisting arrest and hindering prosecution. She was offered a plea deal for misdemeanors for resisting arrest and hindering prosecution (which leads me to believe that those are felony charges) and voluntary probation, which she as well rejected.
Upcoming Court Dates
Garyn's first (and hopefully last) preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday, June 18th at 1:30 PM at 201 W. Jefferson. I believe his attorney has already put in a motion for the judge to throw the case out and plans to show his evidence to the judge.
Claire's first (and hopefully last) preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, June 22nd at 8:30 AM at 201 W. Jefferson. Apparently, her attorney is friends with Garyn's attorney and their offices are right next to each other, so hopefully they're figuring out a good game plan together.
