LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - THV 11's Craig O'Neill was found guilty during his trial Tuesday night at the Governor's Mansion, where he was honored for his dedicated service to charitable organization.
The Presbyterian Village in Little Rock recognized Craig for his work with a variety of groups. Over the years, he has participated in more than 2,000 fundraisers for charitable and nonprofit organizations.
As part of the evening, Craig went 'on trial' to raise money for The Village.
Judge Tim Fox presided over the event, with special prosecutor Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola drawing upon his vast courtroom experience, to try and convict Craig. (Of what, we're still not sure, but that's not important right now).
Craig, meanwhile, enlisted the services of one of Arkansas' premier defense lawyers: Phillip Kaplan.
Craig's wife, Jane, testified along with Cindy Murphy, a victim of one of Craig's pranks years ago. Dawn, Liz, and Ed also testified, and get this ... all of them, Jane, Cindy, Ed, Liz, and Dawn, all of them ... witnessed for the prosecution.
A live auction and 50/50 raffle were also held to raise money for charitable donations.
All proceeds from the event go to Presbyterian Village and its Memory Center. The Village is one of the premiere retirement and nursing facilities in Central Arkansas, and the memory center is being built to handle patients suffering from dementia, and Alzheimers. This is why this trial is so crucial.
