A letter Judge Christopher Dupuy sent more than a year ago to Jason Murray urges the former Galveston County District Clerk to resign "with as much dignity and class that can be had." Dupuy's arrest last week on felony and misdemeanor charges follows Murray's in 2011. Both were swept into office during a 2010 Republican landslide.
Dupuy, who remains on suspension without pay from County Court No. 3 by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, was indicted on two felonies and six misdemeanors, accusing him of official oppression, retaliation and abuse of office.
