Unequal Justice

County Attorney Andrew Thomas lives up to his rep by throwing the book at a young Latino motorist while letting cops off easy

Apparently, Arriaga's rigorous defense in court, his refusal to bargain, his Web site (setlouiefree.com) and his conversations with me, which resulted in two previous articles on the case, now necessitate an apology.

Because Arriaga refused this plea agreement, he will face the original sentence of 10 years, which the judge can reduce to seven.

"To enter a guilty plea by an innocent man does not make any sense," observed Luciano Sr.

The County Attorney's Office wants Louie Arriaga (above) to serve another two and a half years in prison for what started as an alleged traffic violation.

The County Attorney declined comment.

Officer Thomas Beck: one-week suspension. Officer Steven Huddleston: five-week suspension.

The offer to Luciano Arriaga: four and a half years in prison.

County Attorney Andrew Thomas rules like a mullah presiding over a dusky pest hole.

That County Attorney Thomas,and his gang are a bunch of theves that uses the law to abuse and intimidate. They are currently attempting to steal a piece of Commercial Real Estate that has been in my family for over 25 years,occupied by our family as a Real Estate Office for over 20yrs. We rent it out,the tennants get in trouble with the law,now they want to steal it away from my widowed mother,her one few sources of income to line thier fat greedy pockets. Rudy Anaya Realty was an icon in S Phx for over 30 yrs,this is how they repay the law abiding citizens.

This is America? Thomas and his gang are no different from the Talibans. Shame on those who voted this thug into office.
