We posted a story back in August about shenanigans in the office of the now former Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District of Arkansas, Cody Hiland, that involved his case coordinator April Mathis.
That post detailed how April Mathis used her position to obtain sealed records from another state under the false pretense that it was for a criminal case in Arkansas. Turns out it was sealed records from the divorce case of the current wife of her ex-husband.
The Arkansas Ethics Commission has an on-going investigation into a compliant about that very thing and the search for a Special Prosecuting Attorney to review the matter began several months ago - more on that in an up-coming post.
Mathis was demoted from her position as Case Coordinator to that of Hot Check Coordinator in March after complaints about her illegal activity were made to Hiland.
News came in recently that she was given the choice to resign or be fired. She chose to resign.
The straw that broke the camels back was her latest attempt to use her position in the Prosecuting Attorney's Office for her personal benefit and gain.
According to the report, Nancy Eastham (Deputy Circuit Clerk) was with April Mathis during this kooky episode. Eastham and Mathis spent hours sending emails to each other about personal matters using their work email accounts. A post about Eastham and a threat she made is coming soon.
