Harris County Judge Darrell William Jordan faces a felony charge for his unlawful arrest of former television journalist Wayne Dolcefino

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) – A Harris County judge was arrested Monday and now faces charges of official suppression, records show.

Indictment documents show that Judge Darrell William Jordan unlawfully arrested and detained former television journalist Wayne Dolcefino in June 2020.

ABC13 affiliates at the Houston Chronicle reported that the incident stemmed from an online hearing accusing Dolcefino of interrupting proceedings to ask the judge for a separate investigation.

After repeated warnings, Jordan disobeyed Dolcefino and sentenced him to three days in prison, six months probation and a $500 fine.

Monday’s indictment said the judge wrongly detained and fined Dolcefino without a hearing. The judge has been out of jail since Monday night.
