LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A federally indicted former Arkansas state senator whose uncle is governor and father is a former U.S. senator is now being fined by the state Ethics Commission.
Commission Director Graham Sloan told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette the commission voted 3-0 Friday to fine Republican former Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson $11,000.
Sloan said Hutchinson was found to have used campaign funds as personal income, failed to report some campaign contributions and expenditures and failed to file campaign contribution and expense reports during 2016 and 2017.
Hutchinson’s attorney did not return a phone call Saturday for comment.
His uncle is Gov. Asa Hutchinson and his father is former U.S. Sen. Tim Hutchinson.
