(AP Wirephofo) Amnesty 'Negotiations' Underway In State LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Joe Jradley, 22, formerly of Liltle Sock, has become the first Arkansas draft evader to seek conditional amnesty in the Eastern District of Arkansas. U.S. Ally. W. H. "Sonny" Dillahunty of Little Rock said Wednesday night that he and a federal attorney in California, where Bradley has been living recently, were "in the process of trying to get papers going back and forth." Dillahunly said Bradley had fled the United Slates for Canada to avoid the draft. Dillahunly said the attorney in California and himself were discussing the possibility of allowing Bradley lo meet the conditions of amnesty -- such as alternative service -- in California so that he would not have to return to Arkansas. "Presently, I see no reason why I would object to it," Dillahunty said. Dillahunty said he though! Bradley had been arrest cc' about a month ago in northern California, before President Ford announced his conditional amnesty program. Dillahunty had said earlier .his week that there were 11 cases of indicted draft evaders n his district. Since then, he said, he has learned that an Army deserter is living in Pulaski County. Dillahunty declined to identify the deserter, but said he and the deserter were discussing the possibility of the deserter's seeking amnesty. Another draft evader, Stephen Lucas, 29, of Pocabontas telephoned Dillahunty ' from Vancouver, B.C., Wednesday to discuss the amnesty program. Lucas fled to Canada 5V4 years ago -- · the same day he took his military physical. Dillahunty said Lucas did not indicate -whether he would accept the amnesty offer. "He didn't 'give me a positive yea or nay one way or the other," Dillahunty said. A man who identified himself as "Samuel Lucas," also from he Pocahontas area, told a newsman for KAIT-TV in Jonesboro by telephone Wednesday that he was undecided about returning. Lucas indicated that he might have some difficulty in meeting the Jan. 31 deadline to return to the United Slates because of his job in Canada. Dillahunty, interviewed late Wednesday night, did not have access to his office files and did not know if "Samuel" was Stephen Lucas' first or second name. Dillahunty said he thought there was a good possibility that more draft evaders would be returning home. "The conditions are neither honcrous nor vindictive," he said. U.S. Atty. Robert Johnson of the Western District of Arkansas said the conditions for amnesty were similar to the conscientious objectors' program. Johnson said Judge Paul X Williams of U.S. District Court at Fort Smith already had sei aside three convictions of persons indicted for failing lo comply with provisions of the federal Selective Service Act. Those persons had performed their assigned tasks while on probation and their indictments subsequently were dismissed.
