McKINNEY (AP) — A state district judge in North Texas is set for trial on charges of accepting a bribe that boosted her 2008 election bid in exchange for future favorable rulings in her court.

Judge Suzanne Wooten faces felony charges of engaging in organized criminal activity, money laundering, bribery and tampering with a government record. Opening statements were set for Tuesday in Collin County.

Prosecutors allege that a campaign consultant for the 43-year-old judge took six payments totaling $150,000 from a couple locked in a bitterchild custody battle with the husband’s ex-wife.

Wooten has denied wrongdoing, and reports say she will testify.

Wooten was suspended with pay after her indictment last year. If convicted, her punishment ranges from life in prison to probation.
