The Arkansas Ethics Commission gave state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson a $500 fine and a public letter of warning, saying he illegally converted campaign contributions into “personal income.” The money — $2,700 — was deposited in 2010 into the account of Hutchinson’s then girlfriend. At the time, Hutchinson was married to another woman, Stephanie Hutchinson, but the couple were separated, Hutchinson said.
