sheriff's attorney in this case? >> reporter: that's right, kari. remember that sheriff arpaio has already been found to be in civil contempt of court, so now that same judge wants the sheriff to be held on criminal contempt charges. this the 32-page ruling that came down today, a pretty thick document. it outlines the evidence against the sheriff and several of his top aides. we did speak with sheriff arpaio's attorney who says the sheriff is proclaiming his innocence and they are ready to go to trial to prove it. in his ruling, judge murray snow says sheriff arpaio and several of his top aides intentionally ignored a court order to stop racial profiling. they intentionally hid evidence in this case, including more than a thousand confiscated i.d.s, and they tried to cover up their crimes by lying on the stand. arpaio's attorney says the embattled sheriff is disappointed with the judge's recommendation that he should face criminal contempt charges. and vows that the sheriff is
his innocence. >> we would welcome if it ever gets to that a jury of sheriff arpaio's peers to let them look and see what he has done. absolutely not going to back down. somebody earlier today said, well, would there ever be a plea bargain? absolutely not. you don't plead to something that you haven't done. >> mcdonald went on to say that this will not affect the sheriff's decision to run for a seventh term and that he is confiden again. the big question is if a u.s. attorney does decide to file criminal charges and if sheriff arpaio does go to trial and a jury convicts him, would the 84-year-old sheriff go to jail? >> the chances of him actually going to jail, i think, are very slim. when i say that, people think, well, what punishment is there? or what good is it for him to even go to trial if there's not the possibility of jail? again, there's the possibility of jail, but realistically, we are likely not going to see
court or a jury finds that he should be in criminal contempt. and a lot of that has to do with his age. >> reporter: now, the judge has also ordered the maricopa county board of supervisors to set up a compensation fund and put a half million dollars in that fund for the claimants. now this ruling is just a recommendation. it's now up to a u.s. attorney to look at all of the evidence and to make a decision as to whether or not to formally bring criminal contempt charges aides, and there really is no deadline or timetable for that decision to come down. reporting live, i'm nicole garcia, fox 10 news. >> thank you, nicole, for the latest on that. it is a win for voters who support recreational marijuana in arizona. the proposition to make recreational pot legal in our state expected to appear on the november ballot, but those who oppose it say the fight is not over yet. arizonans for responsible drug
off the november ballot saying the petition's 100-word summary was misleading. and voters didn't know what they were signing, but the judge disagreed, and sided with those who support the measure. >> this is not a surprise. we knew going into this that this lawsuit was frivolous, in every single regard. it was ultimately a waste of the court's time and taxpayer dollars, and the courts ruled against the prohibitionists. >> reporter: prop 205 would have up to one ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants at home. the drug would be taxed at 15% and supporters say more than $55 million would go toward k-12 schools. arizonans for responsible drug policy say that they plan to appeal the judge's decision. we are learning more as a woman is in critical condition after a man shoots her at an affordable housing complex in north phoenix.

outstanding. now, this is the mistake, and this is the ball security issue, and you see it right here. how about brandon flowers, steps in, looking for a little -- a little quick pass to the slot receiver, and it's an int, and bruce arians not happy at all. then drew stanton late in that first quarter, looking deep on that in route to nelson, gets picked off by adie, and cannot be happy. if you're bruce arians, mike bercovici looked good. how about this, 9-13, 108 yards, nice little throw to williams. chargers win 19-3. >> it's another loss for the arizona cardinals, correction, another preseason loss for the arizona cardinals. i asked five people the same
