LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas-area family court judge who is already suspended for a romantic relationship with a prosecutor who appeared before him is facing another Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline inquiry.
Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones has a month to respond to allegations that he was involved in illegal investment schemes, associated with ex-felons, improperly handled drug evidence and once had an intimate relationship with a law student who worked for him.
Commission Executive Director Paul Deyhle tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the panel will consider any response before deciding whether to go forward with a complaint.
Jones' attorneys didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.
The case dates to 2006.
It's separate from sanctions that Jones received for his affair with the prosecutor who argued cases before him.
