Jim Hall

A former candidate for state representative was arrested Monday to begin serving a 90-day jail sentence for harassment and harassing communications.

James A. Hall appealed his April 2015 Drew County Circuit Court conviction of harassment and harassing communications to the Arkansas Court of Appeals. That appeal was denied in August. He then filed a petition for review to the Arkansas Supreme Court. The Arkansas Supreme Court on March 16 declined Hall’s request for a review.

In addition to his 90-day jail sentence, Hall was ordered to not harass Paul Keith (a Monticello attorney), Bobby Spencer or Catherine Hall.
