Judge Indicted for Keying Neighbor's Car

A state district judge from Houston has been indicted after a surveillance videotape seemed to show he scratched his next-door neighbor's car with a key.
69-year-old Woody Ray Densen was indicted today on a state jail felony charge of criminal mischief.
Densen's attorney, Robert Pelton, said the judge is innocent and passed a lie detector test. He also said none of the video footage directly shows his client marking up the car.
Densen, who most recently worked as a visiting judge in Harris County and other counties around Houston, was recorded in May by a camera set up by his neighbor Adam Kliebert after Kliebert found a series of scratches on the back of his car that were made by a key.
The surveillance footage showed Densen walking by Kliebert's Range Rover and dragging his arm along the rear door.
Kliebert, who is a local home builder, did not immediately return a call seeking comment today.
Densen faces up to two years in state jail if convicted.
