In a story that is so lurid that it could be made into a Lifetime movie, a Texas judge has been suspended over popping pills, sexting with a court bailiff, and allegedly paying for sex with prostitutes.
Judge Hilary Green was the recipient of a rare disciplinary action by the state Supreme Court based on the contents of a court filing detailing the abuses.
Green had admitted to using drugs while she was involved with hearing drug possession cases. The intoxicants included prescription medications, marijuana, and ecstasy.
She was also sexting with the court employee and according to accounts – paying for prostitutes to engage in threesomes.

According to the Houston Chronicle “Texas high court suspends Harris Co. justice of peace after sex, pill-popping admissions”:
In an explosive and rare move, Texas judicial authorities on Wednesday asked the Texas Supreme Court to suspend a Harris County justice of the peace accused of misusing illegal drugs, “sexting” a court employee and lying about her relationship with a convicted conman.
The sordid list of accusations against Judge Hilary Green, Justice of the Peace in the county’s 7th Precinct, were revealed in a 316-page court filing by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct’s to the state’s highest court.
The document describes four separate judicial misconduct complaints against Green made between 2012 and 2016 that were previously not released under commission rules.
In her response to the commission, Green admitted to many of the allegations, including illegally obtaining prescription drugs and using marijuana and Ecstasy at the same time she was presiding over low-level drug possession cases involving minors in her court, the records show.
“Judge Green’s outright betrayal of the public’s trust warrants her immediate suspension pending formal proceedings,” the filing says.
The Texas Supreme Court has not yet taken action on the suspension request and there is no deadline for it to rule.
The commission filing confirms that the latest misconduct complaint against Green arrived in 2016 from a man who Green has admitted was her extramarital lover, Claude Barnes. Other allegations were made by Green’s ex-husband, former Houston Controller Ronald Green, as part of their divorce.

Green’s case is a gross abuse of her public and judicial responsibility and while she is expected to fight her suspension, it’s probably going to be difficult considering the media spotlight that has been shining on her.
