The Arizona Commission on Judicial Conduct has charged Pima County Justice of the Peace Paula Aboud with violating judicial ethics.

Aboud is accused of allegedly taking a copy of a test and answer key during a new judge orientation session in January.

Her attorney responded to the charges, saying Aboud did take the test but that it was a prank.

The commission is seeking “censure, suspension, or removal from office.”

Aboud was elected as a Justice of the Peace in November 2016. No hearing date has been set.
