Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Presiding Judge Sharon Keller faces a hit to the pocketbook. In an order signed Wednesday, the Texas Ethics Commission levied a $100,000 civil penalty against Keller for multiple omissions on her 2007 and 2008 personal financial statements. Tim Sorrells, TEC’s deputy general counsel, says, “It is the largest penalty.”

According to the TEC’s final order in In the Matter of Sharon Keller, Respondent, posted Friday on the commission’s website, Keller failed to disclose an interest in eight properties, valued on appraisal district rolls at more than $2.4 million in 2006 and at almost $2.9 million in 2007.
