ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Administrative Law Judge accused of embezzling more than $500,000 has pleaded guilty in federal court.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1SXV9wd ) that Juanita Roibal-Bradley on Tuesday pleaded guilty to 12 counts of wire fraud from defrauding an estate and to defrauding the Social Security Administration of more than $40,000 by receiving disability benefits.

The former administrative law judge is accused of falsely advertising her services as a lawyer to the estate holders when she was prohibited from privately practicing the law. She then transferred funds from the estate into her personal bank account.

Roibal-Bradley served as a judge from 2003 to 2007.
