Federal prosecutors argue against appeal for Arkansas man convicted of federal hate crimes

The Republic on May 4, 2012 released the following:

“THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Prosecutors want a federal appeals court to deny the request of a Green Forest man to dismiss his convictions on hate crime charges stemming from a highway collision that injured five Hispanic men.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez responded to an appeal for Frankie Maybee, who was convicted last year of violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette [] reports the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hasn’t set a date for oral arguments.

Maybee was accused of using a pickup truck to force a car off U.S. Highway 412 near Alpena on June 20, 2010. The vehicle rolled, struck a tree and caught fire.

His attorney, Byron Rhodes, argues there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Maybee on hate crimes charges.”
