Judge Faces Backlash For Reportedly Admitting To Very Un-Judge-Like Behavior

They say everything is bigger in Texas. Well, maybe there’s some truth to this old saw, at least when it comes to overweening egos. Related to this, a judge in Texas is fighting for her job after admitting she sent nude pictures to a bailiff in her court and used illegal drugs while working as a judge.

Note that the Texas state commission charged with disciplining judges is recommending that the Texas Supreme Court suspend Harris County Judge Hilary Green, according to Dallas media sources. It seems Green actually admitted to using marijuana and ecstasy, as well as confirming that she had sexted and sent nude pictures to a bailiff in her court.

Keep in mind that Green has been a justice of the peace since 2007, and was re-elected last November in an easy victory.

The state commission argues that Green should be barred from the bench for life. It claims Green misrepresented her relationship with a convict to hide her illegal purchases of cough syrup, as she reportedly addicted the codeine-containing syrup for years.

Of note, Green’s ex-husband confirmed her addiction to cough syrup in divorce filings in 2015. He also claimed she had sexual relationships with former litigants and witnesses.

According to various sources, Green has admitted to trading sexts with a bailiff in her court, who is apparently still assigned to Green’s courtroom, from October 2013 to March 2014.

It seems that Green requested the bailiff to stop sending nude images after that.

Green’s attorney – Chip Babcock -- argues that she cannot be removed from the bench for anything she did before she was re-elected in November 2016.

The commission’s filing against Green also questions why Green did not remove the bailiff from her courtroom or get him reassigned. Babcock points out that is not within Green’s power as a justice of the peace.

“He doesn’t work for her and so she doesn’t have any personnel responsibility over him so she couldn’t fire him or reassign him if she wanted to,” Babcock explained to the media. “We’re going to aggressively defend this.”
