Summary: Unable to let go of the fact that two women rejected him, a former judge made profiles for the two women on an escort website.

According to CBS News, a former judge decided to seek revenge on a couple of women after they rejected him. Former County Court-at-Law Judge Christopher Dupuy was arrested and charged with two counts of online harassment after he allegedly created fake sex ads for two ex-girlfriends.

Col. Ray Tuttoilmondo, the spokesman for the Galveston County sheriff’s office, said that the former judge was arrested on Thursday. Bail was set at $600,000. The former Galveston County judge has also requested a court-appointed lawyer.

A judge resigned after he was arrested for battering his wife.

The criminal complaint states that two women told law enforcement that Dupuy harassed them after they turned him down. The ads were created without their knowledge. Photographs from one victim’s Facebook profile were used in one ad that was placed on Backpage.com. The ad, which was created in the escort section of the website, also included the victim’s phone number. The Daily Mail adds that one of the ads said that the victim was into fetishes and would “guarantee full satisfaction.”

A sheriff’s investigator issued a subpoena for the username used to place the ads, and traced the account to Dupuy.

According to the Huffington Post, one of the victims hired Dupuy when he was a practicing attorney to handle her divorce case. He allegedly wanted to have a relationship with her. The victim dated Dupuy six years ago, when she was still single. She told Dupuy she was not interested in dating him again, and he began harassing her on Facebook by sending her photos with rude comments.

Dupuy was indicted two years ago on criminal charges stemming from his conduct while he served as a judge. In 2010, Dupuy was elected to the bench. Soon after he became a judge, many began complaining about his conduct. Dupuy allegedly threatened an attorney over the phone, and refused to recuse himself from a case in which he was socially linked to one of the attorneys.

In Philadelphia, a judge sanctioned an attorney in the amount of close to $1 million.

The State Commission on Judicial Conduct issued a reprimand against Dupuy in 2014, stating that he retaliated against attorneys, including the attorney that represented his ex-wife in their divorce. Dupuy would retaliate by declaring the attorneys in contempt of court, issuing sanctions, and even ordering an arrest.

The Texas attorney general’s office filed both civil and criminal cases against him in May of 2013 in hopes of removing him from office. The commission suspended him.

Judge Joe Brown was arrested last year for contempt.

In September 2013, Dupuy pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges, abuse of office, and perjury. He was sentenced to two years of deferred adjudication, and was barred for running for office during this period.
