Bobby McCallister resigns judgeship as agreed following tax charges

Posted By on Mon, Dec 18, 2017 at 10:24 AM

Bobby McCallister resigned his circuit judgeship Friday as he'd previously agreed to settle a complaint by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission.

He'd been suspended from the bench when an investigation began of his admission in his divorce case that he hadn't filed state and federal income tax returns for a number of years.

The formal completion of the deal was filed Friday. McCallister, who'd been a judge in Saline County since January 2009, will not be eligible to serve as a judge again. A criminal case is pending against McCallister, who still retains a law license. Trial is set Tuesday and Wednesday. The state Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct oversees lawyer licensure.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson recently named Barbara Webb, wife of state Republican Party Chair Doyle Webb, to replace McCallister until a successor can be elected.
