Indicted Galveston judge arrested again

August 6, 2013

GALVESTON – A Galveston County judge already under nine indictments related to his official conduct has been indicted on additional charges of aggravated perjury, Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said Thursday.

County Court-at-Law Judge Christopher Dupuy surrendered to sheriff’s deputies Wednesday at the Galveston County Jail and was released on $1,000 bond by 6:45 p.m., Trochesset said.

Dupuy is accused of making two false statements while testifying in a custody battle over his two children with his ex-wife, Adrienne Viterna.

He testified that he first learned on May 22 that attorney Greg Enos had filed a criminal complaint against him alleging the use of Dupuy’s chambers to provide legal assistance to his then-fiancee. At least three publications, including the Houston Chronicle, published articles mentioning emails sent to them by Dupuy prior to May 22 that referred to the criminal complaint.

Dupuy also is accused of perjuring himself by saying that sanctions he imposed on Enos were related solely to Enos’ conduct in Dupuy’s courtroom.

Dupuy could not immediately be reached for comment.

Deal allows Galveston judge replacement

August 6, 2013

GALVESTON – Indicted Galveston County Court-at-Law Judge Christopher Dupuy agreed Thursday to a deal allowing a replacement judge to be named until criminal and civil cases against him are resolved.

Although Dupuy is under suspension by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, a second suspension order was sought in a civil lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and local attorney Greg Hughes.

The suspension in the civil lawsuit will allow visiting District Judge Robert Kern of Fort Bend County to appoint a temporary replacement in County Court-at-Law Court No. 3.

Noting that Dupuy is already suspended, Assistant Attorney General David Glickler called the second suspension “an exercise in legal gymnastics.”

Dupuy was indicted last month on eight criminal charges relating to his conduct in office, including two felony charges of official oppression. A Galveston County grand jury issued a ninth indictment last week accusing Dupuy of improperly practicing law as a sitting judge.

In our blogpost of the article regarding Texas Judge, Christopher Dupuy, who was indicted on eight criminal charges, (posted 5/23/13) we inadvertendly transposed Mr. Dupuy’s name in the title of our post with the name of state District Judge Kerry Neves, who was not indicted but instead was presented with said indictments against Mr. Dupuy.

Upon being informed of the error, we immediately deleted the post in its entirety and reposted the story with the corrections at this URL: Texas Judge Christopher Dupuy Indicted on 8 Criminal Charges

Our sincere apologies to District Judge Kerry Neves.
