Attorney wants trial moved for ex-UCA chief

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY (Log Cabin Democrat) - Attorneys for the University of Central Arkansas' former Chief of Staff Jack Gillean filed a motion Thursday to move the trial to Van Buren County, according to documents filed at the Faulkner County Courthouse.

Prosecutor Cody Hiland said Monday he will be reviewing the filings.

"Any response will be timely filed with the court," Hiland said.

Gillean is charged with three counts of commercial burglary, one count of a fraudulent insurance act and one count of issuing a false financial statement. All are felonies, except issuing a false financial statement, which is a misdemeanor.

Gillean was charged and turned himself in after former student Cameron Stark was arrested in June for breaking into UCA academic buildings by using Gillean's keys.
