MEET JUDGE WEEKS
Judge Weeks is a life-long resident of Arkansas. His parents raised him in Walnut Ridge, where he graduated from high school in 1994. He attended the University of Central Arkansas, earning an undergraduate degree in English and Philosophy. From there he received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.
Judge Weeks was drawn to public service at an early age. In 1999 he was elected to the city council in Conway, Arkansas at the age of 23, where he served six years. He served as city attorney for Walnut Ridge and Hardy prior to being elected District Judge of Lawrence County.
Judge Weeks has been on the bench for five years. He has had thousands of cases come before him as Judge. He understands and respects the position of public trust he holds. Every single defendant that comes before him is treated with respect and dignity. Every single case receives his careful consideration.
Firm and Fair, not fines and fees
Judge Weeks often uses alternative sentencing options for those who are unable to pay their fines and fees. As a result, thousands of hours of community service have been completed; young people have completed their GED; those struggling with addiction have completed drug and alcohol counseling; and over 353 drivers caught driving on a suspended driver's license have been required to get their driver's license back.
