The law east of the Cache


Circuit Judge L.T. Simes, has been reversed on a bit of East Arkansas home cooking. The Arkansas Supreme Court ruled today that theft charges should not have been dismissed against West Helena city officialas who authorized pay for themselves after they left office. Simes had dismissed the charges on account of a defective arrest warrant. The Supreme Court said that wasn't sufficient ground to bar prosecution. (There were seven separate appeals, one for each city official charged. I've linked the opinion in one case by Chief Justice Jim Hannah.)
