MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A west Alabama probate judge is resigning after being charged with violating rules for judicial ethics.

Greene County Probate Judge Earlean Isaac agreed to quit for improperly handling her father’s estate in court. In another case, Tallapoosa County Probate Judge Leon Archer got an unpaid, six-month suspension for sending sexually charged messages to a woman.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/2aZ9PZG ) reports the Alabama Court of the Judiciary approved settlements in both cases Monday. The Judicial Inquiry Commission filed charges against Issac and Archer last week.

The commission accused Isaac of violating judicial canons by presiding over a case involving the probate of her father’s estate. The commission says Isaac and her siblings were heirs to the estate.

Archer was accused of sending improper messages to a woman he married as probate judge.
