TALLAPOOSA, Ala — An Alabama probate judge is off the bench for a few months as he faces charges for sending sexually explicit photos to a woman in his courtroom.
The woman tells investigators she first appeared in Judge Leon Archer’s court to get married.
State judicial investigators say they filed administrative charges against Archer this week. The charges accuse Archer of sending sexual texts and nude photos to the woman.
Archer’s lawyer says the judge does not deny sending the messages and agrees to a six-month unpaid suspension.
