Ex-California Sheriff Surrenders for Prison Term
January 25, 2011
Disgraced Orange County (Calif.) Sheriff Michael Carona showed at a federal prison in Colorado to begin a 5-1/2-year prison term for witness tampering.
Carona, dubbed "America's Sheriff" in 2009, was Orange County's top cop before he was indicted, tried and convicted of trying to convince a former top aide to lie for him during a spreading federal investigation of corruption in the sheriff's department.
Carona was free on bond pending his appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Earlier this month, a three-judge panel threw out his appeal, reports the Orange County Register.

Sad, pride cometh before the fall. It could happen to any one of us. Remain humble brothers and sisters in LE. Corona needs our prayers. Be safe!

"EX SHERIFF" of Orange County California- CORONA, is darn lucky he is ONLY getting 5-7 yrs. in prison! He deserves a whole lot MORE than that, in my opinion. It will be a cake-walk for him because, he will be doing his time in a "Federal" joint , with all kinds of 'counselors' and inmate clubs, programs, etc., at tax payers expense. CORONA is a typical example of a corrupt politician at the county level , in California. California is in the toilet due to all the other political opportunists from the ranks of the two corrupt major political parties...'the republicrats', in Sacramento. CORONA is a shameful example of the "waste-fraud & abuse" in government MINDSET. BILL HUNT would of been an excellant "pro-constitutional" Orange County Sheriff. America needs MORE BILL HUNT's, JOE ARPIO's, and Sheriff Mack's, to bring better INTEGRITY to the office of Sheriff. -Larry Breazeale, Msgt.,USAF Security Forces,Deputy Sheriff (So.Ca.) 27 yrs., retired, Nat.
