PHOENIX (AP) – Christmas carols will be filling the halls of the Maricopa County Jail Tuesday, when Sheriff Joe Arpaio holds a contest for inmates.

The winner of the caroling contest will receive a full Christmas dinner for him or herself, and their cellmates. As part of this competition, each inmate must sing a well known Christmas carol.

Sheriff’s officials say the inmates who plan to participate in contest are being held on a variety of charges, ranging from burglary and DUI, even murder.

Sheriff’s officials tell our affiliate in Phoenix, KPHO, the judges will include Sheriff Arpaio, Santa Claus, and a singing detention officer named “Elfis.”

    I just found out the the girl first up in the video (Jodi Arias, being held for the murder of her former boyfriend) singing "O holy Night" won the contest............ Is she going to get to carve up the turkey like she....... well, you can read about it. I guess she can also have this victory here as it will likely be her only victory.
