(Las Vegas, NV) — The state Commission on Judicial Discipline has been asked to investigate a judge who had a romantic relationship with a former prosecutor. District Attorney David Roger tells the “Review-Journal” he filed a complaint against Family Court Judge Steven Jones Tuesday. Roger says it involves Jones’ conduct after his relationship with Lisa Willardson. Jones barred two prosecutors from his court after the DA recused Willardson from cases before the judge. She was fired last week. Jones’ attorney says the complaint is groundless.
