“The Arkansas Attorney General announced a guilty plea from Billy T. Smith Wednesday, who immediately resigned his position as mayor of Glenwood, Arkansas.

In pleading, Smith admitted to a Class A misdemeanor of theft of property and abuse of office. Smith will pay $3,000 in restitution along with a $250 fine, the Attorney General stated.

The charge came from an August 2021 investigation that found Smith had hired a private company to transport asphalt millings valued at $4,000 from a nearby highway resurface project. The Attorney General stated the millings were used to repave Smith and his son’s driveways. “
