PHOENIX (AP) - A top aide to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is being called into court Thursday to answer questions about mischaracterizing key findings in a racial profiling case.

The hearing marks the second time a sheriff's official has been ordered to court for inaccurately summarizing the findings of U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in the case against the sheriff's office.

Last week, the judge chided Arpaio and Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan for similar errors.

Ten months ago, Snow concluded Arpaio's office systematically racially profiled Latinos in its immigration and regular traffic patrols. Arpaio has appealed the ruling.

The judge is expected Thursday to question Deputy Chief David Trombi about his comments at a March 15 community meeting.
