FOREST HILL (AP) -A North Texas judge indicted in a campaign contributions investigation has been suspended.

The Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct has suspended Forest Hill Associate Municipal Judge Mario Perez. The criminal case involves alleged incidents before Perez in 2011 became a judge.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Tuesday that Perez is charged with six counts of tampering with a government record. The attorney was indicted in April and suspended June 27.

Perez faces charges that he falsified 2009 campaign contributions of an Arlington school trustee. The trustee has not been charged.

Forest Hill City Manager Sheyi Ipaye said Wednesday that the city council July 17 upheld the suspension.

Perez attorney Greg Westfall says when a judge is charged with a felony he is suspended with pay.
