  • CONVICTED: Jack Gillean
The Log Cabin Democrat reports that a jury in Van Buren County has convicted Jack Gillean of all charges in his trial on burglary charges related to use of a master key by a student to get copies of exams.

Gillean, the former chief of staff at UCA, faced six burglary counts. Gillean didn't testify, but his attorney argued that the student, given immunity for testimony, took keys without Gillean's knowledge. The prosecution argued that other witnesses corroborated the story.

The jury deliberated less than two hours. The trial was held in Clinton because of pre-trial publicity in Faulkner County, where the crime occurred.

UPDATE: The Log Cabin reports that the jury  sentenced Gillean to three years in prison, 10 years probation, and a $35,000 fine.

    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.
