Imprisoned former Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold said he is “hopeful” that President Trump will grant him “a pardon or some other relief,” after he pleaded guilty in 2017 to wire fraud, honest services fraud and extortion. The Daily News Journal reports Arnold, who is currently serving a 50-month sentence for his role in illegally selling electronic cigarettes to inmates, is now positioning himself as a prison reform advocate, joining forces with the “White Collar Coalition” that’s asking Trump to reduce prison overcrowding by releasing all non-violent first time offenders of white collar crimes if they’ve served half of their sentences.
