BENTON, AR - A special judge has been assigned to hear the case of a central Arkansas Sheriff arrested last month.

Saline County Sheriff Bruce Pennington faces charges of public intoxication and refusal to submit to arrest.

Rather than a Benton or Saline County judge, Little Rock Criminal Court Judge Alice Lightle will hear the case to avoid a conflict of interest.

Sheriff Pennington says he plans to plead guilty. Trial date is set for August 5th.
