Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced today that he'd appointed Andy Shock, the Republican sheriff of Faulkner County, to the state Parole Board to replace Richard Mays, who resigned last month.

Shock will resign as sheriff when sworn in. His start date is Sept. 1 for a term to run through 2018. Parole Board is a classified state job, with pay based on years in classification. Mays made $85,000. Shock said he'll make $82,500.

Shock, 41, was elected sheriff in 2012. The Faulkner County Quorum Court will choose someone to serve after Shock leaves the post.

Hutchinson said in a prepared statement:

"Andy brings hands-on experience in criminal justice from his tenure as sheriff of Faulkner County. He understands the justice system, how it works, and how it should work. Because of his real-world experience and character, Andy will be a valuable asset on the Parole Board, and I am pleased that he has agreed to serve."​
