LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas' highest court has ordered that a judge accused of failing to pay state and federal income taxes be temporarily suspended with pay.

The state Supreme Court on Monday ordered the suspension of Saline County Circuit Court Judge Bobby McCallister until a criminal case over the tax charges is resolved. The state Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission asked justices for McCallister's temporary suspension with pay after he was charged with four felony counts of failing to pay taxes. McCallister's attorney earlier Monday told the court the judge agreed to the temporary suspension.

McCallister also faces judicial misconduct charges from the commission. The commission has said it appears McCallister did not file taxes between 1995 and 2014, but it isn't clear how much he may owe.

"An Arkansas judge accused to failing to pay state and federal income taxes is agreeing to a temporary suspension with pay."

So - he has reportedly agreed to NOT work for his pay? Very magnanimous of him. Where do I sign up for deal like this? Go fishing - get paid ~$77.00 an hour. Take a nap - get paid ~$77.00 an hour. Watch TV - get paid ~$77.00 an hour.
