Judge Rules Search Warrant Valid in Case Against Lonoke Officials

JANUARY 18, 2007 - Posted at 8:04 a.m. CST

 

LONOKE, Ark. (AP) - A judge says a search warrant that turned up evidence at the home of the former Lonoke police chief and his wife was valid. Lawyers for former chief Jay Campbell and his wife, Kelly Harrison Campbell, had argued that the affidavit in support of the warrant did not provide the information needed and should not have been approved. But Special Circuit Judge John Cole says the warrant met legal tests.

Also, Prosecutor Lona McCastlain says trials have been delayed for former Lonoke mayor Thomas Privett and former dispatcher Amy Staley. The two are co-defendants in the corruption case. Their trials will be held after the Campbells and bail bondsman Bobby Junior Cox are tried February 20th.
