A special prosecutor is calling for the removal of Grant County Sheriff Ray Vance.
In 2010, a Kansas judge ruled that Vance falsely obtained a lifetime license so he could hunt in that state. That's a misdemeanor.
The conviction is considered an infamous crime here in Arkansas, and the state constitution says no one convicted of an infamous crime is eligible to hold an office.
Steve Gartman, who ran against Vance in the 2010 election, hopes to see the law exercised.
"We complain a lot about Washington, D.C., even state government, but if we can't get it right at the local level we have no business complaining," Gartman said.
Vance has maintained he made a mistake and paid the $13,000 in fines.
He told Fox16.com he would respond by email on Wednesday.
