Walnut Ridge judge facing discipline retires

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 1:37 PM

The Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission announced today that it had dismissed a pending complaint against District Judge Larry Hayes of Walnut Ridge. At the same time, it announced he had decided to retire effective Dec. 31 and had agreed not to seek future office as a judge.

Hayes had been elected to a new term beginning next year. His retirement means the governor will have to appoint someone to the vacancy.

The dismissal means the nature of the complaint, which arose in 2011, wasn't revealed.
