Former Saline County Sheriff Bruce Pennington was scheduled to appear for a pre-trial hearing this week, but his trial was continued. Pennington is now set to appear at 9 a.m. on Friday, March 6.
Bill James of Little Rock, who is serving as Penningtonâ€™s counsel, has filed two motions to suppress information during Penningtonâ€™s trial.
According to the motions, James claims on May 16, 2014 members of the Arkansas State Police â€śillegally detained the defendant and conducted a search and seizure of the defendant and his property.â€ť
