U of A Professor Case Moved to Drug Treatment Court


A criminal case against a University of Arkansas professor has been moved to a drug treatment court.

Justin Murphy Nolan, an anthropology professor, will have felony drug charges dismissed if he successfully completes drug court requirements; that’s according to a transfer order filed Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Nolan is on paid administrative leave from the university, according to a U of A spokesman Steve Voorhies.

He was charged with four counts of possessing a controlled substance.
