FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 7, 2018
Governor Hutchinson Announces Intent to Appoint Former Prosecutor, Legislator to Fill Judge Vacancy
LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson has announced his intention to appoint Gunner DeLay as district court judge in Sebastian County, Fort Smith District. 
His term will begin July 1 and run through December 31, 2020. He is replacing Judge Ben A. Beland.
“With his 30-year law career, his term as a prosecutor, and his service in both houses of the Arkansas legislature, Gunner DeLay brings a depth of experience that will ensure thorough and fair consideration of the cases that come into his courtroom,” Governor Hutchinson said. “Sebastian County is fortunate that a man of his caliber is available, and I am grateful for his willingness to serve.”
Mr. DeLay, an attorney, was a member of the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1995-1999 and a member of the Arkansas Senate from 1999-2003.
In 2007, then Governor Mike Huckabee appointed Mr. DeLay as prosecuting attorney for Sebastian County, where he oversaw the 12th Judicial Drug Task Force.
Mr. DeLay is a life-long resident of Fort Smith. He and his wife, Robin, have four children: Taylor, Gunner Jr., Caroline and Suzanna.
“I’m humbled the governor would select me to fill this vacancy on the bench.  I am excited about the opportunity and look forward to serving the citizens of Fort Smith as District Judge,” Mr. DeLay said.
“On behalf of the people of Fort Smith I want to express gratitude to retiring Judge Ben Beland for his many years of outstanding service.  He will be greatly missed by those who work in the courthouse and in the legal community. As District Judge, I will work hard, respect all who appear before the court, and I will dispense justice according to the law.”
