Pulaski County constables found guilty on federal charges

Two Pulaski County constables were found guilty in federal court on Friday of multiple charges.

The two elected officials were found guilty by a federal jury of Conspiracy Against Civil Rights and Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. The verdict came in around 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Pulaski County constables Michael “Wally” Wallace and Gary Baldock were arrested last year after an undercover FBI agent was sent to Pulaski County following complaints against the two.

Sentencing hearings in the current matter for both constables were set for October 18.

Baldock faces another upcoming trial in mid-July, where he faces charges of Attempted Murder of a Federal Agent and Discharge of a Firearm During and in Relation to a Crime of Violence.

Those charges stem from an incident that took place on March 6, 2020, in which Baldock reportedly exchanged gunfire with FBI agents as those agents attempted to arrest Baldock on the conspiracy warrant. Both Baldock and an FBI agent were wounded.

Both men are facing up to 10 years in prison on the conspiracy charge. Wallace faces up to 40 years for his meth charge, while Baldock faces up to 20 years for his.
