A Randolph County judge who admitted having an affair with a community corrections official is accused of violating the Code of Judicial Conduct.
Wilfong reported her affair with former North Central Community Corrections director Travis Carter to the commission in October 2013.
The commission says Wilfong carried on the affair in her judicial chambers between court proceedings. She also is accused of failing to disclose the relationship to the corrections program's board, although she is a non-voting member.
Wilfong says in a response to the charges that the relationship was inappropriate. But it didn't affect her work as a judge.
