Lawyers for an Arkansas judge facing a negligent homicide charge after his son's death in a hot car say they disagree with the prosecutor's decision to pursue criminal charges.

Circuit Court Judge Wade Naramore was arrested Thursday and released on $5,000 bond.

His 18-month-old son, Thomas Naramore, died July 24 after being left in a hot car for about five hours. The arrest warrant says the judge told investigators he called 911 after getting in his car to pick his son up from day care and realizing he was still in his car seat.

Naramore's attorneys, Patrick Benca and Erin Cassinelli, said in a statement that "there is no legal or factual basis for believing Wade committed any crime." They said "this was a tragedy but not a crime."

An Arkansas judge has been arrested on a complaint of negligent homicide after the death of his son in the back seat of a hot car last summer.

An arrest warrant filed in Garland County on Thursday says Circuit Judge Wade Naramore is named in the misdemeanor complaint.

The judge's 18-month-old son, Thomas Naramore, died July 24 after being left in a hot car for about five hours. According to the warrant, the judge told police he called 911 after getting in his car to pick his son up from day care in the afternoon and realizing his son was still in his car seat.

Special prosecutor Scott Ellington said Naramore surrendered and was later booked and released on $5,000 bond.

A message left with Naramore's attorney was not immediately returned.
