Judge Cougar accused of lying to police by her opponent in election

Circuit Court Judge Audrey Creighton, running for election in Montgomery County’s primary this month, was accused of harboring her live-in boyfriend when he was a fugitive from an arrest warrant issued by another judge in her own court. At the time the warrant was outstanding, she admits living in an intimate relationship with the boyfriend, Rickley Senning, a violent felon less than half her age.

In a June 6, 2014 open letter seeking the withdrawal of the other judicial candidates’ endorsements of Ms. Creighton (attached), Circuit Court Judicial candidate Daniel Patrick Connell further alleges that Ms. Creighton lied to Montgomery County Police and circumvented court rules and procedures to keep Mr. Senning from being taken into custody. Supporting materials can be found on Mr. Connell’s website, www.ConnellfortheCourt.com.

Sources tell News4 Senning was hospitalized after the incident, but discharged before police got to him to make an arrest. The victim, sources say, is Audrey Creighton, a circuit court judge.
Court records show Creighton had served as Senning’s public defender in a trespassing case when he was 19.
Creighton filed a protective order against Senning Tuesday, saying he lived with her in her Montgomery County home in the summer of 2013 and for a brief period in early May. Creighton wrote Senning had grabbed her head and yanked her during an argument.
