Fort Smith Prosecuting Attorney: Hearing in Lackey contempt case rescheduled for May 16
Updated: Apr 28
Today in fort Smith was notified on Friday the next hearing in this never-ending saga of contempt, slander, and lies has been rescheduled from May 2 to May 16 for 1:30 p.m.
The request came from the newly acquired attorneys of Ms. Lackey who told the court they would not be available on May 2. TIFS was notified because editor and publisher Dennis McCaslin has been subpoenaed by the court to appear as a potential witness. TIFS also learned today that at least one other individual will be subpoenaed next week to appear in the next hearing. Lackey is facing contempt charges because she used a cell phone to take photographs during a court proceeding on April 5. She then posted two photos on social media, thereby exposing her own contemptuous behavior in court. According to officials, Lackey faces up to a $500 fine and 30 days in the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center if she has found guilty of the contempt charge.
