David Freppon, a defeated candidate for White County judge, is set to go to trial January 28th on charges he lied on paperwork he filed to apply to run for the office. Prosecutors charge that Freppon of lied on the political-practice pledge. Freppon, of Bald Knob, has been on the White County Quorum Court for ten years. Prosecutors say that when Freppon filed to run for White County judge in March he signed a pledge declaring that he has never been convicted of a felony. However, prosecutors found the 61-year-old Freppon pleaded guilty to felony arson in 1969 and received a suspended sentence. Freppon has said he believed he was convicted of a misdemeanor that year. A report from the White County Sheriff`s Office also finds that Freppon was convicted of a felony while he was in the military in 1963 after a racial fight. Freppon lost in the November second general election.
