The State Commission on Judicial Conduct suspended Elsa's Municipal Judge Hilda Caceres after she came under accusations of forgery and tampering with government records.
The commission ordered that Caceres, who is running for Justice of the Peace for Hidalgo county Precinct 5, be suspended with pay beginning Monday. Caceres is now prohibited from performing any judicial function until her criminal case is over. The 45 year-old judge is accused of forging signatures on a Deed of Trust, assignment of leases and rents, and an affidavit of identity. If convicted, Caceres will not be able to take office.
