AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The lawyer of a Central Texas judge whose home was raided by federal authorities last week says his client is innocent.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives executed a search warrant Friday night at the home of Williamson County Court-At-Law Judge Tim Wright. An ATF spokeswoman has said the search is connected to possible federal firearms violations.

Wright hasn’t been arrested and no charges had been filed against him as of Monday afternoon.

Wright’s attorney, Jeff Senter, says federal authorities seized documents and “tangible things” from 70-year-old Wright’s home, but he wasn’t aware of specific items that were taken. He believes no firearms were seized.

Wright, who took office in 2003, declined to comment on the raid Monday to the Austin American-Statesman.
