Pulaski County Housing Agency found to have violated client's rights in very first administrative hearing - Main evidence of alleged fraud by PCHA former staff tossed by hearing offical as unreliable

Our investigative journalistic efforts to uncover and report on corruption at the Pulaski County Housing Agency and assist and advocate for victims of that agency's incompetent and criminal conduct has resulted in the resignation of Veletta Smith, a Deputy County Attorney and Fred Love, Pulaski County Community Service Director.

Our advocacy efforts also resulted in having a victory in the very first administrative hearing conducted over clients of PCHA having housing assistance vouchers revoked by PCHA under claims of criminal wrongdoing by former PCHA employees.

Included in that victory was a finding by the Neutral Hearing Officer, Pamela Abrams, that a critical record cited by Love and County Judge Barry Hyde that they allege points to former staff members conspiracy to commit fraud against PCHA and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") was tossed out and will not be considered as evidence against PCHA clients.

Take a look at the findings.


We are poised to participate in other administrative hearings as an advocate for PCHA clients adversely impacted by these voucher revocations under false pretenses. We have assisted two PCHA clients in their administrative hearing at this time.

We are also coordinating efforts to assist victims in possible legal actions.


So far about 50 individuals have responded.

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter
