Constable accused of rape gets Feb. 28 date with judge
Published Saturday, December 11, 2004
Faulkner County Circuit Judge Michael Maggio set bond at $100,000 Friday in the case of constable-elect Joshua Jackson Dickens.
Dickens, 22, was charged with rape, kidnapping, aggravated assault of a family member and third degree domestic battery for an alleged incident at his home involving a woman with whom he had an on-going relationship.
After excluding three Little Rock television news cameras that had set up in the back of the courtroom, Maggio set the bond and announced a pretrial hearing date of Feb. 11. The case will be brought before Circuit Judge David Reynolds on Feb. 28.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Stephan Hawks said after the appearance that the rape and kidnapping charges were Class Y felonies, convictions for which carry a sentence of 10 to 40 years in state prison, with a sentence of life possible in some cases. The assault charge, a Class D felony, carries a sentence of up to 6 years. The domestic battery charge, a misdemeanor, carries a sentence of up to a year in the county jail.
Defense attorney Jeff Hall of Conway declined to comment on the charges, possible pleas or whether or not Dickens would post bond.
According to the Sheriff's Office report, Dickens is accused of holding the woman at knife point and threatening to kill her, of burning her arms and legs while not allowing her to leave and then of sexually assaulting her.
Lt. Jack Pike, spokesman for the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office, said Dickens allegedly let the woman leave the Greenbrier residence Wednesday morning. She then made a report at the sheriff's office.
Dickens was arrested without incident at his home on Wednesday afternoon.
Dickens defeated incumbent Steve Padgett in the race for East Fork Township constable in the November general election and is to assume office Jan. 1.
Constables are not paid. They are allowed to carry firearms and make arrests, but they are not required to have formal training.

Judicial Corruption is rampant.  Our rights to a fair trial are a myth.  Many judges are totally corrupt.


Our fundamental rights have been taken away by a government of wrongs. Stolen by corruption.


Misconduct is everywhere. Dishonesty abounds. Perjury, subornation of perjury, corruption!


Abuse, Dishonesty, Corruption.  It's all common with Police and Law Enforcement.


Government Dishonesty is Bad.
We must find honest people
and make them accountable
to We the People.
