Prosecuting attorney Larry Jegley will not be seeking reelection at the end of his current term. He serves as the prosecuting attorney for the Sixth Judicial District, which includes Pulaski and Perry counties.
Jegley announced that he would be finishing up his current term, which ends in 2022. However, he cited health issues that have affected his daily life.
“For the last several months I have been experiencing severe vertigo that has not responded to traditional treatments. I have had numerous tests that have not pinpointed the cause and been on several different medications that have not alleviated the problem,” Jegley said in an email. “While vertigo is not life threatening, due to the seriousness of my condition, it has made my daily life difficult.”
First elected to the office in 1991, Jegley has served eight terms as the Sixth Judicial District prosecuting attorney. His most recent term began in 2019.
Jegley graduated from Hendrix College and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law. He served as the Chief Staff Attorney for the Arkansas Court of Appeals before joining the prosecuting attorney’s office.
