An Oklahoma County judge has been found in contempt by a state watchdog agency for failing to turn over subpoenaed records.

The Oklahoma Ethics Commission voted 3-0 last week to find Judge Kendra Coleman in contempt. The commission did not identify Coleman by name, but the judge revealed she was the target when she filed a complaint on Wednesday with the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

In the complaint, Coleman contends the agency must be more specific about the allegations against her and the campaign. Coleman is facing a felony charge for failing to pay state taxes in 2017.
