Timothy Abrahamson, Former MCSO Deputy, to Serve 180 Days in Jail for Attack on Wife's North Dakota Lover

Former Maricopa County Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Abrahamson
Former Maricopa County Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Abrahamson will serve 180 days in jail in North Dakota for a brutal and cowardly attack last year on his wife's lover.

Abrahamson was sentenced to one year, to serve 180 days, plus two years' probation, restitution, and to undergo an assessment, says Tristan Van de Streek, Cass County prosecutor. He's also prohibited from any contact with the victim during his probation.

The former deputy worked for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office for seven years before resigning in November over the incident. He'd been considered a model employee before his November 7 arrest and had played a key investigative role in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's now-discredited anti-corruption task force.

But after learning that his wife had had an affair in 2011 with an old flame, he made a terrible decision that led to the end of both his career and that of his buddy's, former deputy Steve Carpenter.

Though Abrahamson's anger at being cuckolded may be understandable, the way he attacked victim Jason Swart isn't.

Records show that the Abrahamson and Carpenter drove about 1,600 miles from the Valley to North Dakota on September 16, then apparently waited for Swart to get home.

Swart eventually pulled up in his driveway, returning home from a meal with family members. He noticed two men sitting in a sedan, and one of the men got out and approached him, holding out an envelope.

The man, later identified as Abrahamson, told Swart he'd been receiving Swart's mail. The victim looked at the envelope. The next thing he remembers is waking up in a pool of his own blood. One of his ears had been nearly severed in the attack.

After Abrahamson was pegged as the culprit, Cass County authorities cut an immunity deal with Carpenter in return for giving up info on Abrahamson.

Arpaio's office served a search warrant on Carpenter's phone records on November 1 at the request of Cass County officials. Lisa Allen, Arpaio's spokeswoman, told us previously that the agency first learned of Carpenter's involvement in the crime on November 7, the day Abrahamson was arrested. Carpenter was put on paid leave the very next day, and he resigned on April 26, Allen said.

As we reported last week, a local lawyer also says in a lawsuit that Carpenter held him down as another deputy beat him in an alleged assault that took place three months before the North Dakota incident.

We put in a request Thursday night with Cass County officials for more information about Abrahamson's sentence, such as whether he'll be held in isolation, and how much he's supposed to pay in restitution. We'll let you know what we find out.

That big SISSY looking POS wont make it on mainline......for one he has no badge to hide behind. He'll have to go protective custody .......HIS kind aren't very popular in jail. I give two or less days to lock up!!!!!


Kind of handy that he's got that hair ring around his mouth so it looks like a pussy.  He might learn to like it in jail.  I'm sure he has already had some fun there. If you were his wife, wouldn't you cheat on him?  Thinking of chris christie's wife.  How could she sleep with such a horrendous hog?  just like this pig.


Last I knew, there is a website put up by former MCSO personnel documenting the injuries and deaths that have happened under ourpile.  Hope it is still up.  This mug looks exactly like the thug that ourpile would love.  How many millions already paid out in settlements?  I pray that I will never enter Maricopa County, because they would kill me there because I would tell them what they are.  [well, maybe the hot babes on the TV show who do seem to be human]


WTF!! 180 DAYS When it seemas that he planned the attack, waited 4 his victim to arrive, and then conducted the attack, this has all the ingedients for a long stretch in prison....could it be that the RACIST 1 pulled some strings? FUCKING JOKE.


violent offenders need to server more time.

drug possession < violence.

yet the drug offender spends more time in jail, I just assume they make better cellmates so the private prisions want to be full of them. 


Hero to Zero in no time flat...now he gets a taste of jail life.

I think of a few more that work for Arpaio that deserve the same thing.


Some people REALLY think their above the law...who'll watch his back now?


6 months for assault, thats it ?

He's lucky this wasn't in Arizona, he would have got 6 years...well, maybe not if MCSO did the investigation, since there wouldn't have been one and he probably would have got promoted by Bozo Joe.

Enjoy general population Goon !
