On the morning of Friday, August 20, 2010, when Senior Judge Robert D. Jones was sitting in Harris County's 337th District Court, lawyers saw him revoke a defendant's bond and jail her because her lawyer was absent. The defendant remained in jail until Monday, when the sitting judge in that court returned and reinstated her bond.

In January 2011 the State dismissed all charges against the defendant.
Six months later the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association filed a complaint (PDF) against Judge Jones with the Texas Commission For Judicial Conduct (HCCLA Complaint re Judge Robert Jones 071411).
...
Musick wrote Hoang a letter explaining the law, and sent an additional affidavit describing Jones's conduct (Robert Jones- Letter to Nahdiah):
...
Okay, these criminal-defense lawyers are going to be a real pain in the ass if we don't, so we better sanction Bob. I move that Bob buys the next round. All in favor? Aye. All opposed? Motion passes. I'm so sorry, Bob.
...
Some complainants might, if they were told this, still help the Commission hush up judicial misconduct, but most probably would not-the point of filing a complaint is getting something done, and privately requiring Bob to buy the Commission's next round of Jäger Bombs is not a satisfactory result. It has no deterrent effect on Bob, much less on the rest of the judiciary.
