Court of Appeals affirms former UCA official's conviction; turns down steel mill permit challenge

Posted By on Wed, Dec 9, 2015 at 10:16 AM

The Arkansas Court of Appeals affirmed decisions in a couple of high-profile cases today.

* JACK GILLEAN: The court affirmed the conviction of Gillean, former chief of staff at the University of Central Arkansas, on six commercial burglary counts. He got a three-year sentence and $35,000 in fines. The charges stemmed from Gillean providing a master key to a student who used it to get tests from faculty offices. Gilllean's attorney had challenged, among others, the admissibility of some evidence and whether he'd been given adequate notice that his conduct was criminal.

* NUCOR-YAMATO: The court turned down the effort by Nucor and Nucor-Yamato Steel in Mississippi County to get judicial review of state regulators' approval of an air permit for the Big River Steel plant under construction with state assistance in Mississippi County.  The suit claimed the Pollution Control and Ecology Commission had not given sufficient review of a permitting decision by the Department of Environmental Quality. Today's decision affirms the Commission.
