ETHICS COMMISSION FINDS PROBABLE CAUSE IN THE APRIL MATHIS COMPLANT - TO SEND OFFER OF SETTLEMENT

APRIL MATHIS


The Arkansas Ethics Commission held a Probable Cause Hearing on Friday, November 17th for the complaint filed by the publisher of this blog against April Mathis. 

You can view the full complaint by clicking here. And you can read out previous posts concerning her by clicking here, here and here.

April Mathis did not appear at the hearing and was not represented by her attorney James Barger.

JAMES BARGER - APRIL MATHIS' LAWYER
The publisher of this blog was permitted to address the Commission and he reiterated the facts of the complaint.

He also informed the Commission that after the filing of the complaint, Mathis had attempted to use her position to influence a Faulkner County Sheriff's Deputy. That attempt resulted in her separation from employment with the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District (see this previous post). He pointed out that a Special Prosecutor has been appointed to look into a complaint presented by the Conway Police Department regarding the same matter that resulted in the complaint before the Commission.

He stated that this was a indicator of a pattern of behavior by Mathis,  to use her position as an employee of that agency to get her way even if it was in violation of the law.

A review of the Commissions file revealed some interesting information provided by April Mathis.

When the District Clerk from Flathead County Montana was finally able to speak with April's former boss, Cody Hiland, Hiland pulled April into his office and asked her what she was up to. Hiland demoted her from Case Coordinator to Hot Check Coordinator with a reduction in salary and sent her home for three days without pay.

Mathis also made some wild, unsupported accusations in written statements:

1. She alleged that her ex-husband provided the publisher of this blog with a copy of a deposition in which she perjured herself. FALSE - her ex has never contacted, spoken with or sent anything to the publisher of this blog.

2. She alleged that Peg Allison, the Flathead County Montana District Court Clerk is not a real person because she Googled that name and found nothing. FALSE.


3. She alleges that the Flathead County Montana District Clerk's Office sent her sealed court records by mistake and they are trying to "cover their ass." FALSE. Exhibits in the complaint clearly show that Mathis requested all the documents under false pretense.

April Mathis has told what few friends she still has that what this blog has posted about her is all false and made up.  If that is the case, why has her attorney not demanded that it be taken down? Why did the Ethics Commission accept the complaint about her and move forward? Because it's all true that's why.

Mathis clearly has issues with the truth.  Just check out her heavily retouched photo she posted on her Twitter account.

There is an  order for a psychological evaluation in her open domestic relations case.  Can't wait to see how that turns out.
 
The Ethics Commission will send Mathis an Offer of Settlement, in which she will have to agree that she violated Arkansas law by using her position as a public employee to obtained sealed records from another state for her our personal benefit and gain.  They can also impose a fine anywhere from $50 to $2000.

She will have a few days to sign and return the letter. If she does not sign the Offer of Settlement,  the Commission will set the matter for a full final hearing.

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
