RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) - A Rio Rancho city councilor has apologized after she says she accidently sent a text message that contained profanity to a municipal judge.

KRQE-TV reports that Judge G. Robert Cook filed an ethics complaint against City Councilor Cheryl Everett after he says she sent him a text with profanity directed at him by name last month.

Everett says the judge was critical of the council, but she did not intend to send him the text. She says she immediately tried to apologized, and in the future she “will focus on being more professional and productive.”

City officials say the ethics complaint was dismissed and Everett will not face any punishments.
