Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today released a statement offering condolences on the passing of Izard County Sheriff Earnie Blackley.
“My heart goes out to Sheriff Blackley’s family, friends and the community he tirelessly served,” Attorney General Rutledge said. “He was a dedicated leader of the law enforcement community; serving more than 30 years.
