JUDGE AFFAIR
Commission charges Randolph judge who had affair with violating judicial code

Reported by: Associated Press
Monday, April 28, 2014 12:09 PM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


A Randolph County judge who admitted having an affair with a community corrections official is accused of violating the Code of Judicial Conduct.

The Judicial Investigation Commission charged Circuit Court Judge Jaymie Wilfong with violating several canons of the code. They include integrity of the judiciary and impression of improper influence.

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.
