Judge charged with hitting girlfriend

A probable cause court magistrate has recently been put on unpaid leave after being accused of hitting a woman that he was dating. He has been charged with family violence and is free on $1,500 bail.

The 52-year-old man was arrested in late April on charges of assault of a family member, a Class A misdemeanor. If found guilty he could serve up to a year in prison.

The man is one of the five people who hears cases in the probably cause court. A committee of state district judges voted to put the man on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the case.
