CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Faulkner County clerk Margaret L. Darter has pleaded not guilty to tampering with public record.

The Log Cabin Democrat (https://bit.ly/1NbwT6f ) reports that Darter entered her plea in circuit court on Monday. Darter was charged following an investigation by Arkansas State Police.

Darter turned herself in and was released on Oct. 27.

Faulkner County Prosecutor Cody Hiland had requested the investigation before recusing himself from the case. Hiland has said that he received information that statements of financial interest from some county officials were filed after the legal deadline, but were improperly stamped as being filed on time.
