OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A panel of judges in Oklahoma has voted to remove a district judge from office over allegations of unpaid taxes, ethics reporting violations, and her behavior in the courtroom. The nine-member Court on the Judiciary delivered its ruling Friday against Oklahoma County District Judge Kendra Coleman following two weeks of testimony.

Coleman had denied wrongdoing. A telephone message left Friday with her attorney, Joe White, wasn’t immediately returned. Coleman still faces a felony criminal charge for failing to file state income taxes.
