Rutledge Statement on Milligan Investigation


March 13, 2015

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced that she concluded her investigation of Treasurer of State Dennis Milligan and his hiring of a relative to his administration, a violation of Arkansas law. Rutledge released the following statement:

“I have concluded my investigation of Treasurer of State Milligan. As a result of my findings, Treasurer Milligan has agreed to a settlement agreement. He has signed the agreement with my office and will pay the maximum civil penalty of $1,000. Although the agreement gives Treasurer Milligan until April 6, 2015 to pay the penalty, he elected to pay the fine upon signing the settlement. This payment will be deposited to the General Revenue Fund Account of the State Apportionment Fund. Treasurer Milligan has met the requirements set forth in the settlement, and I now consider this matter resolved.”
