Senator Jeff Flake's son Austin has lost his malicious prosecution case against former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Flake's attorney telling Channel 12 the jury of 8 in this civil case quickly deliberated and found for Arpaio.
Austin Flake had sued Arpaio after he was arrested and charged in the death of 21 dogs at a kennel in the East Valley. Flake's in-laws ran the place, but were out of town and Flake and his then wife were left in charge.
Charges against both Flake and his ex-wife ended up being dropped.
On the phone with 550 KFYI, Arpaio said he appreciated the jury's ruling.
