(INDYSTAR) — An attorney and part-time judge in northern Indiana is facing disciplinary charges after allegations that she had sexual relations at a state prison with a client.

The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications has filed three disciplinary charges against Lisa Traylor-Wolff, a senior judge serving in Pulaski and Fulton counties. Senior judges, such as Traylor-Wolff, work part-time to fill in for trial court judges and also may practice law.

The charges stem from an alleged “physically intimate relationship with a 26-year-old client” who Traylor-Wolff had been appointed to represent, according to a statement issued today by the Indiana Supreme Court.
