Abusive Impacts of Arkansas's Draconian Evictions Law
February 5, 2013
This 44-page report tells the stories of Arkansas tenants who were dragged into criminal court for transgressions that would not be a crime in any other US state.

One woman was berated in open court by a district judge, who compared her to a bank robber.
