Yet Another Trial Could be Awaiting Former Batesville Prosecutor

MARCH 24, 2004 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A judge has set aside time next month to begin a retrial of former prosecutor T.J. Hively of Batesville and two co-defendants, if prosecutors go forward.

A judge declared a mistrial earlier this month after jurors were deadlocked on 33 charges among the three defendants.

The retrial would begin April 26.  Prosecutors have not yet said whether they will try the remaining charges.

In the latest round, Hively was convicted of one count of racketeering and four counts of mail fraud.  Jurors were deadlocked on his eleven other counts.

Hively's former law partner Wesley J. "Butch" Ketz, who was convicted of racketeering and two counts of mail fraud, may be retried on 19 counts of money laundering.  Bail bondsman Gary Edwards can be retried on three charges.
