(Galveston County Jail)
A former judge who served Galveston County, Texas, was convicted Wednesday of online impersonation after the use of the pseudonym “Don Tequila” posting fake escort ads from two ex-girlfriends.
Christopher Dupuy, 47, was sentenced to six years in prison for posting the women’s photos and phone numbers, in an act of online revenge, the Houston Chronicle.
Dupuy had posted photos of the women of the Facebook accounts in sex-for-hire ads he bought on Backpage.com. Federal agents seized and shut down the web site in April as part of an investigation into prostitution and human trafficking, KHOU-TV reported.

The ex-judge was initially arrested and charged with impersonation in July 2015, and spent a year in prison, the paper reported. Dupuy was released a year later after a visit to a county judge ruled that the state of the online imitation of the articles of association made.

A court of appeal later overturned the visit at the discretion of the court after a woman in Harris County filed a complaint accusing Dupuy of calling her 200 times in a night and a threat of her life, according to the Chronicle. A warrant was issued for the former judge of the arrest. That case is still pending.

Dupuy resigned from the bench in 2013, after serving four years, while facing the charges of lying under oath and abuse of office. He pleaded guilty and received two years of deferred adjudication for the misdemeanor charges, the paper reported.
