COVID-19 Updates for Criminal Defendants in Arkansas

The Coronavirus, known as COVID-19, has had dramatic effects that are rippling across the country. This includes the shutdown of our local, Bentonville courts and a pause in the prosecution of criminal defendants. 

I am here to provide expert assistance and advice during these uncertain times. 

Below you will find the latest information on court closures and other information on what it means to be a criminal defendant in the age of Coronavirus. To visit the official Arkansas Judiciary website for more information, click here.
