Fort Smith felon gets two years added to current prison sentences
A thrice-convicted felon who was already in prison will get to extend his stay with the Arkansas Department of Corrections after an additional conviction in Sebastian County Circuit Court last week on Possession of Methamphetamine charges.
Clayton Allen Long, 49, of Fort Smith was returned to Sebastian County on Monday where he faced the felony drug charges for a June 21, 2020 arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance.
Long, who had previous drug convictions dating back to 2014 as well as a prior prison stay for Second Degree Battery out of Pulaski County, was given two years with four years suspended on the June arrest. In addition he added a late 2020 arrest out of Howard County on essentially the same drug charges that added additional time to his incarceration.
In addition to the prison stint, Long will have to make restitution to the court for fines and fees at $60 per month after he is released from jail and will have his drivers license suspended for six months.
