    Judge's lawyer says charges are ridiculous.

    State District Judge Suzanne Wooten and three other people have been indicted on six counts of bribery and one count of engaging in organized criminal activity.

    The charges stem from the judge's 2008 campaign and allege that David and Stacy Cary gave money to Wooten's campaign manager, James Spencer, in exchange for a favorable decision in court, according to DallasNews.com.

    Wooten's attorney, Peter Schulte, told DallasNews that the accusations are part of a "political vendetta" and are "completely ridiculous."

    A spokesperson for the Texas Attorney General's office said they aren't commenting on the case at this time.
