Two attorneys for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office won't get paid any more for their services until county officials get a better handle on the department's spending.
The Sheriff's Office's contract with Kris Kobach was terminated last month. Kobach helped write Arizona's controversial new immigration law and it's unclear how much Kobach made in his six months under contract.
Robert Driscoll is another attorney representing county Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the U.S. Justice Department's civil-rights investigation into racial-profiling allegations. Driscoll reportedly has received more than $150,000 for his work so far.
County officials first learned of the payments earlier this week after they showed up on spreadsheets sent to the Department of Finance, the county's central finance agency.
