GALVESTON, Texas A suspended and indicted judge surrendered Wednesday on more felony charges, specifically aggravated perjury, which accuse him of making false statements under oath, authorities said.

Judge Christopher Dupuy was elected in 2010 to Galveston County Court at Law No. 3, but his controversial reign ended in May with his arrest on eight felony and misdemeanor charges of obstruction or retaliation, abuse of official capacity and official oppression.

On May 23, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct suspended Dupuy without pay. Dupuy was also arrested June 12 on another misdemeanor charge of abuse of official capacity and released on $1,500 bond.
