ARKANSAS COURT OF APPEALS
ROBERT J. GLADWIN, JUDGE
RONALD LEE MISHION
STATE OF ARKANSAS
DECEMBER 12, 2007
APPEAL FROM THE SEBASTIAN
COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT
HON. NORMAN WILKINSON,
Appellant Ronald Lee Mishion appeals the revocation of his suspended sentence by
the August 24, 2006 order of the Sebastian County Circuit Court. On appeal, Mishion
contends that the State failed to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that he violated
the terms and conditions of his suspended sentence and that the trial court erred in allowing
certain testimony, which Mishion claims denied him his constitutional right to confront the
witnesses against him. We affirm.
Mishion pled guilty to one count of aggravated assault, a Class D felony, on
September 19, 2005, for which he was given a sixtymonth suspended imposition of
sentence. One condition of his suspended sentence was the requirement of good behavior.
1 Detective Sampson testified that he was made aware after the arrest that Mishion
had registered as a sex offender in open court when he pled guilty to the seconddegree
sexual assault charge in February 2006.
On February 14, 2006,Mishion pled guilty to seconddegree sexual assault, aClass B felony,
for which he was given a 120month suspended imposition of sentence. One condition of
that sentence was that he not violate any federal, state, or municipal law.
On March 17, 2006, the State filed a petition to revoke Mishion’s suspended
sentences. The petition alleged that he had failed to comply with the rules and regulations
of the probation office by failing to report and by failing to cooperate and comply with the
conditions of the Department of Community Correction Sex Offender Program. Before the
petition could be heard, it was amended on June 2, 2006, to include three allegations of rape
committed in Oklahoma duri
