MORE PROBLEMS FOR SEBASTIAN COUNTY DISTRICT JUDGE JIM O'HERN - THIS TIME IT'S ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS
|LRPD MUGSHOT OF JIM O'HERN|
No doubt readers will recall the escapade in December 2016 at a sketchy Little Rock hotel that lead to the arrest and release of then Judge Elect Jim O'Hern of Fort Smith and his questionable girlfriend Brandie Gibson after meth was found in their hotel room.
Gibson was charged with possession of a controlled substance and in September 2017 made a negotiated plea and was fined and placed on three years probation. Her probation case was transferred to Fort Smith and she is listed as residing at the same address at Judge O'Hern.
In the coming days we will detail the appointment of a Special Prosecuting Attorney in Sebastian County to investigate allegations of violation of a court order and harassment by O'Hern and Gibson.
Our previous posts about the Judge Jim O'Hern Scandal:
O'Hern is probably the only sitting married judge in Arkansas to ever have a felony probationer as a live-in girlfriend.
O'Hern is currently under investigation by the Arkansas Judicial Discipline & Disability Commission in part due to his involvement with Gibson.
Now Judge O'Hern is facing a complaint for accepting an illegal campaign contribution made by the Fiori Joint Revocable Trust,
That trust is administered by Sam and Susan Fiori of Fort Smith.

Sam Fiori is CEO of K-Mac Enterprises, Inc., a franchisee of Golden Corral, KFC and Taco Bell.
No doubt this will open another investigation by the JDDC into Judge O'Hern's questionable activities.
Here is the complete Ethics Complaint filed against O"Hern, Bill Warren, Jr, his campaign treasurer and the Fiori's.
