ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - A Randolph County judge says her past affair with a community corrections chief didn’t affect any matters before her.

Circuit Court Judge Jaymie Wilfong said Wednesday in a news release that the Judicial Investigation Commission has filed charges against her related to the affair.

Wilfong says she took full responsibility for her conduct in a response she filed Wednesday to the charges. She says she also denied that the affair affected any matter or litigant over which she presided.

The judge says she voluntarily reported the relationship to the commission on Oct. 14, 2013. Others filed reports later that week, including her law clerk, the county prosecutor and several local attorneys.

Wilfong apologized to Randolph County residents, other judges and justices, and her husband for her conduct.
