Fort Smith, Ark. – Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders released the following statement:
“My focus is on the safety of Arkansans and ending the failed policy of catch and early release of violent criminals in this state.
Sadly, the Board of Corrections has chosen repeatedly to focus on pushing lies, political stunts, and power grabs.
We firmly support Joe Profiri as Secretary of Corrections and are proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved together.
During ongoing litigation Joe Profiri will be serving as a senior advisor to me in my office. I’m confident that Attorney General Griffin will successfully defend the law in court.”
