PHOENIX (AP) An appeals court in San Francisco will hear arguments Wednesday in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio's bid to erase his contempt of court conviction from his record after he was pardoned by President Donald Trump.

The former six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix had appealed a lower-court ruling that refused to expunge his conviction for disobeying a 2011 court order barring his traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.

The judge who made the ruling explained pardons don't erase convictions or the facts of cases and that Arpaio's clemency only mooted his possible punishments.

Arpaio's lawyers had previously told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the lawman was deprived of his opportunity to appeal his conviction because the pardon came before he was sentenced and final judgment was entered, so the conviction must be erased.

1. A confession of guilt is a requirement for a pardon.

Let Joe relinquish the pardon, then go back to court to argue his innocence from that position.

2. Hard to believe he found a lawyer to advance this.

Perhaps he insisted, even though as a former LEO he should know exactly what the judge told him, that his pardon didn't erase the facts of the case. Maybe he's shopping judges looking for a MAGA?

Needless to say, there are a lot of legal ethics violations here, but I expect nothing less from him.

8. typical of the "law & order" party

lock up thousands (including children) that are not guilty of anything, and wipe the slate clean for those that are guilty as SH*T

9. A pardon isn't the same thing as an expungement, you sadistic moron.

Pardons--in their most idealistic form at least (definitely not the sham found here)--are an act of mercy.

They are not intended as a means to right an injustice of someone who was wrongfully convicted.
