Filing False Police Report

Faulkner County Circuit Court Judge Harry Foster II on Friday affirmed a lower court’s ruling and found a Conway man guilty of filing a false police report against state Senator Jason Rapert.

46-year old Stephane Ferry was sentenced to 90 days in jail, fined $1,000 and ordered to have no contact with Rapert or his family.

The fine and 60 days of the jail sentence were suspended on the condition that Ferry not violate the no-contact order and serves 30 days in jail within 90 days. The case stemmed from a telephone conversation between Rapert and Ferry in January of 2018, which both men recorded and Ferry telling the Conway Police Department that Rapert had threatened him, telling an officer that the Republican lawmaker was “sending people after me.”  Judge Foster said Ferry’s actions were a deliberate “attempt to pervert and subvert the criminal justice system.”
