Suspended Houston Judge ARRESTED & Charged For Allegedly Firing Shots At Her Husband’s Mistress

​ ​ ​ ​

A suspended Harris County civil judge has found herself in hot water again! She was arrested for allegedly firing shots at her husband’s mistress. Sheesh! Details about the shooting and the wire fraud charges that caused her to get suspended inside….

2020 continues to bring the wildest stories!

A Harris County civil judge – who was suspended last year after she was indicted on federal wire fraud charges – has now been arrested and charged for allegedly firing shots at her estranged husband’s mistress/girlfriend outside of the woman's Houston home.

District Judge Alexandra Smoots-Thomas - who served on the bench of the 164th Civil District Court for 10 years before her suspension last year - was taken into custody and reportedly charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to police, the shooting incident happened at the victim’s home when Smoots-Thomas allegedly pulled up in the woman’s driveway and caused a disturbance. The judge’s lawyer claims the alleged victim had some sort of weapon, which promoted Smoots-Thomas to pull out her gun and fire.

“My client was in a car and the other woman was outside the car. I believe she was carrying a club or some sort of stick with the intent to assault my client and a gun appeared. A shot was fired but nobody was hurt,” said Smoots-Thomas’ attorney Kent Schaffer.

Judge Smoots-Thomas – who lost her re-election bid in July - was out on bond for the federal wire fraud charge and was NOT permitted to posses a weapon.

“We have reason to believe that they will move to revoke her bond in federal court and because of that we are already getting ready for a bond hearing to try and keep her out on bond,” Schaffer said.

As for her federal charge, she was hit with an indictment for allegedly misusing almost $25,000 in campaign funds. She was accused of using the money for her personal use, which included using funds for her mortgage, private school tuition for one of her children, a Prada handbag and a $700 ring from Zales. The federal trial is slated for November.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office said their Public Corruption Division was handling the prosecution.

“The law applies equally to everyone, including those in positions of power,” Assistant District Attorney Stuart Tallichet said.

This woman needs help. Let’s hope she receives it.
