PROSECUTING ATTORNEY TRIES TO WIGGLE OUT OF COMPLYING WITH LEGAL FOI REQUEST

Monday we posted a story about David Ethredge, the Prosecuting Attorney for the 14th Judicial District and how he was breaking the law by not providing information subject to a Freedom of Information request.

Late this afternoon we received an email from his office that contained this letter as an attachment.




As you can see the letter was dated with today's date and states that my request involves a judge.  

The letter also invites the publisher of this blog to attend a hearing, but gives the date of the hearing as January 6th, last Friday! 

If there is a hearing and it involves the FOI request made by the publisher of this blog, then it is not proper notification and violates the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure.

Readers will recall that we actually requested a copy of the case file his office had on a criminal case not filings made.  

This letter is evidence that Ethredge does not understand the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.

When we requested a copy of the file the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney had on Erica Suskie, that office promptly responded and provided use with a full copy of their file.  You can see it in a post we made back in August 2016.

That file did not have copies of any pleadings the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney filed in the Suskie matter. There were copies of filing made in District Court, but none of the Circuit Court pleadings were included.

Any information about a minor victim is to be redacted from these requested documents, as did the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney in their response to you FOI request.

The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act requires that even if there is exempt information in requested documents, that "any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be provided after deletion of the exempt information".

 

The Attorney General's Opinion Ethredge listed deals with minor victims. Anyone with any knowledge whatsoever of the Arkansas FOI Act know that minors names redacted in requests of this sort.  You shouldn't have to go before a judge to have that confirmed. Besides, we never asked for the name of the victim.  Ethredge must be a geniune dumb-ass.

  

This is the Arkansas Code he referenced.
 





Duh, anyone with one eye and half a brain knows this.  Again, we did not ask the victims names and do not expect it to be released in response to this FOI request.

This the the Supreme Court Order he mentioned, actually it is an administrative order of the courts.

 

We must point out that Order 19 clearly states that the file maintained by Ethredge is not subject to the order, the damn fool just has to redact the victim(s) names and identifying information.

 

Again, we ask what is Ethredge trying to cover-up? 

Stay tuned for updates.

Conway Police are looking for information about a fight that happend last night. Tell them we have all the tea.

  The family of a man that is a contractor for ARDOT showed their klan cards last night after a fight at Maly's Entertainment Center in Conway, AR. Michael Wade Kennedy, a convicted felon, allegedly fought with and stabbed a Black teenager outside the venue then he and his klan hurled racial epithets at the teenagers and their families. The Kennedy klan has a long association with ARDOT (formerly the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department). Maylays advertises to "Bring the Whole Gang" and apparently that is what the Kennedy klan did. Here are videos before the fight and of the fight. In the videos you can see the convicted felon Michael Kennedy brandishing a knife.     Here are three videos that show what happened after the fight. In one of the videos you can see Kennedy holding a knife and then secreting it in a females rear pant pocket.     Michael Drew Kennedy was sentenced in 1999 to a 10 year prison sentence after he attacked a man with a knife at a club j

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri
