Ex-Guadalupe judge (and former state trooper) admits pot possession
Former Guadalupe County Judge Mike Wiggins, who resigned last April after being arrested in College Station on a misdemeanor pot possession charge, has pleaded guilty.
“I'm glad it's over,” Wiggins, 59, said today, declining further comment.
Defense attorney Shane Phelps said Wiggins considered going to trial because of “serious extenuating circumstances,” but instead took a plea last week and was placed on six months deferred adjudication, fined $1,000, and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service.
“Judge Wiggins just wanted to get this behind him, to accept responsibility and to move on,” Phelps said.
