ORDER directing Hughes to pay the $400.00 filing and administrative fees or file an application to proceed in forma pauperis by 9/25/2017. Hughes must file an amended complaint too by 9/25/2017. The Court directs the Clerk to mail Hughes a 1983 complaint form and an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 8/23/2017. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MARTY BOYD, Sheriff,
1. Hughes hasn't paid the $400 filing and administrative fees or filed
an application to proceed in forma pauperis. He must do one or the other by
25 September 2017. If he doesn't, then his case will be dismissed without
prejudice. LOCAL RULE 5.5(c)(2).
2. Hughes must file an amended complaint too. Hughes says he was
arrested by the Jonesboro Police Department on certain charges and placed
in the Craighead County Detention Center. But Hughes' s complaint doesn't
give any details about how he was harmed or the status of the charges
brought against him. Hughes must therefore file an amended complaint
explaining (1) what Sheriff Boyd did that allegedly violated his rights,
(2) what harm he suffered as a result of Sheriff Boyd's actions, and
(3) whether he is in jail pending trial or has been convicted and sentenced.
If Hughes doesn't file an amended complaint by 25 September 2017, then his
case will be dismissed without prejudice.
3. The Court directs the Clerk to mail Hughes a blank§ 1983 form and
an application to proceed in forma pauperis. If the Court grants Hughes
permission to proceed in forma pauperis, he will have to pay the $350 filing
fee in monthly installments taken from his prisoner account. 28 U.S.C.
