If a “continued refusal” on Howard Frank Keathley’s part to acknowledge responsibility for his crimes was the driving factor behind a 90-day jail sentence recommendation in November, odds are he is looking at more time now.
Keathley was scheduled to appear in court this week on a narcotics charge but failed to show up.
This has become a pattern for the convicted narcotics trafficker.
There has been an outstanding warrant for his arrest since January.
Before that, there was a court order revoking his bail.
