Negotiated plea

Posted By on Tue, Oct 3, 2006 at 2:58 PM

 Warren Overton entered a negotiated guilty plea today to a single count of bank fraud. He'll be sentenced later, but his admission to kiting a $750,000 check and causing some $1.3 million in losses likely will expose him to a minimum sentence under federal guidelines in the three- to four-year range. In return for the plea, Justice Department lawyers dismissed eight other counts, a spokesman said Overton also was orded into a 28-day inpatient substance abuse treatment program, followed by clinical supervision in advance of sentencing. Overton was indicted in November over unpaid mortgages on his former home in the Country Club of Little Rock vicinity. Some of the money he lost went to cover losses in securities accounts he managed. Overton acknowledged an alcohol problem in his appearance today before federal Judge Leon Holmes, Arkansas Business reported.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
