More controversy in the race for prosecuting attorney in the district based in Conway.

A circuit court order Thursday appointed a special prosecutor to handle the case of three hot checks allegedly written on a joint First Security Bank account in the names of J. Cody and Jana Hiland. A special prosecutor was sought because Hiland, a Republican, is challenging incumbent prosecutor Marcus Vaden in the November election. Hiland has had some past tax lien problems.

Someone who is likely our troll and some unsympathetic to Hiland are jousting on the Log Cabin Democrat’s account of the action.
