MacKool v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant Michael MacKool was convicted of first-degree murder and theft of property, for which a cumulative sentence of sixty years' imprisonment in the Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC) was imposed. The Supreme Court affirmed. The State subsequently filed a petition pursuant to the State Prison Inmate Care and Custody Reimbursement Act seeking reimbursement from Appellant's inmate account of a portion of the cost of housing Appellant in the ADC. After a hearing, the circuit court determined that the State was entitled to the $5016 in Appellant's inmate account, and a written order was entered that ordered deposit of that money into the state treasury. Appellant timely appealed. Before the Supreme Court was Appellant's motion to file his reply brief belatedly. The Court (1) denied the motion, as Appellant's tendered reply brief did not comply with the Court's rules; and (2) affirmed the circuit court's decision to order reimbursement from Appellant's inmate account.
