Proctor on the bench

Posted By on Mon, Nov 10, 2008 at 11:34 AM

Circuit Judge Willard Proctor was back on the bench this morning as if nothing happened last week. This morning was his weekly session for progress report on probationers. They continue under the thumb of his Cycle Breakers program.

Proctor told our reporter, Gerard Matthews, that he didn't intend to comment on allegations made public last week from the state's judicial discipline agency. His lawyer, Blake Hendrix, gave an interview aired on KUAR this morning that amounted to a general denial of all allegations. He insisted that Cycle Breakers is independent of Proctor, despite evidence to the contrary, and he disputed the report that probationers with expunged criminal records have been jailed for failing to pay fees to Cycle Breakers.

Rumors continue to swirl about related developments in the case. No word yet if the state Supreme Court will open the sealed file on Proctor's challenge of the disciplinary proceeding.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
