Lloyd Warford to lead Medicaid fraud control unit

Judd Deere, spokesman for Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, mentioned to me today that Lloyd Warford will be the deputy attorney general in charge of the office's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. He succeeds Jeanette Hamilton, who remains on the attorney general's staff.

Warford is a former public defender, staff attorney at the Department of Human Services and prosecutor. His time at DHS preceded Rutledge's time in the same office several years later.

Warford may be familiar to Arkansas Times readers for a tangential role in the West Memphis Three case. He submitted an affidavit that testified to prejudicial remarks a juror made to him in the original trial that led to a death penalty for Damien Echols. His affidavit was among the materials gathered by the long but finally successful effort to win freedom for the WM3 in a West Memphis murder case.

Two other divisions of the office are being led by "senior attorneys," Deere said, while the office considers new permanent chiefs. These are public protection, or consumer protection, and the community relations/crime victims division.

  • 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.
