Former Congressman May be Forced into Bankruptcy

APRIL 1, 2005 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Second District Congressman Tommy Robinson has been named by creditors in a petition to force him into bankruptcy.

Once a colorful and controversial Pulaski County Sheriff and now a farmer, Robinson was named along with his wife Carolyn in a petition filed March 25 at the Helena federal Bankruptcy Court.

Wildlife Farms Two LLC of North Little Rock, Boyd Rothwell of Little Rock and William AS-Thompson of North Little Rock filed the petitions.  They listed claims against Tommy Robinson totaling nearly $180,000.  The claims against his wife total more than $140,000.

The Robinsons may contest the petitions in the court.  If they lose, they could have their assets liquidated and the proceeds distributed to the creditors.
