A Brazos County Justice of the Peace has received a warning from The State Commission on Judicial Conduct.
The commission found Precinct 3 Judge George Boyett acted unlawfully in January 2008 when he followed a Texas A&M student to her apartment, after he says she cut the judge off while driving and forced him off the road.
Boyett ordered the student to appear before him in his court the next day, despite the fact that the alleged offense took place in another Justice of the Peace's jurisdiction.
The young women did, along with her father. While on the bench, Boyett became annoyed when the student's father questioned his authority. At Boyett's direction the student received a traffic citation, issued out of the precinct of the judge who had jurisdiction of the area where the alleged incident occurred.
The commission found Boyett's actions were not in compliance with the law, that he used his status for his private interests, and demonstrated a lack of patience, dignity or courtesy expected of a judge.
Boyett was issued a public admonition for his actions.
