Justice of Peace runs in own ward after forced resignation


JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. — An ousted Justice of the Peace is now back on the ballot after previous issues over where he lives forced him to resign.

Delton Wright previously served as Justice of the Peace for district 3 in Jefferson County.

He left office after our investigation found he wasn’t living in that district, a violation of state law.

He’s up against Patricia Johnson, both are democrats.
