Court order filed against county judge

the Sunday News
CAMDEN – A circuit court order of protection and no contact order has been issued against Ouachita County Judge Mike Hesterly in regard to his estranged wife, Stephanie Leigh Hesterly, and a special prosecutor has been assigned to the case, according to the Camden Police Department.
The special prosecutor is Ken Casady of Benton, according to a news release from the Camden Police Department, in which Chief William O’Keefe, stated: "I have been advised by Special Prosecutor Casady to inform the press that his office does not make comments pertaining to ongoing investigations."
O’Keefe stated that the case was referred to a special prosecutor because of Hesterly’s "public position."
The CPD news release stated that Hesterly’s estranged wife reported to the police department that he allegedly made threats to "cause her bodily harm."
"It is the policy of the Camden Police Department that all domestic related complaints will be investigated," O’Keefe said in the news release, but no further details were divulged.
Hesterly filed the report against her husband on Sept. 21. and on Sept. 26, an order of protection was issued, according to the news release.
The Sunday News contacted Hesterly about the allegations made against him by his estranged wife.
"I did not make any threats of bodily harm to her on Sunday," he said. "There is no evidence that I did. I believe, because of my public position, this has been handled in a different manner than it would have if I had not been.
"Because of this protective order, which I have not been given a transcript of my statement, until a hearing is made, I am having to turn over my seven-year-old daughter – who has spent 24 hours with her mother in the last year and a half, almost a year and three quarters. My daughter is devastated.
"I am working with my attorneys to try and end this divorce and get my name cleared and get to a hearing. "I deny threatening her and I deny anything else." I ask for the prayers of my friends."
Hesterly said that he had been ordered to turn over his daughter to her mother by 5 p.m. Friday.
"I ask for the prayers of my friends," he said.

I just want to say that I think that this article is very one sided. I have to believe that there is more to this story. I can't for one second believe that the mother of these children only saw one of them for a total of 24 hours in a year and a half. Hesterly was able to use the paper to try and gain sympathy from voters, knowing that his estranged wife would not be asked to comment. He has ran things in Ouachita County long enough.

When it come to the care of those kids, MR. HESTERLY IS A GOOD DAD AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN PRESENT AT THEIR SCHOOL AND EXTRA CURRICULAR EVENTS...regardless of our opinion of him about his office...no one can doubt that he loves, cares, and has always been therE for the three kids, one not biologically his, yet cared and loved by him and his family just the same...as for the mom...I think it was all about money but she is still their mom so I won't say anything bad...I would'nt want anyone saying a bad thing about my family, so I will hold back... God Bless You Mike...So glad you got those kids back. They are with the better parent..
