A commission that oversees Arkansas judges has filed charges of failing to pay state and federal income taxes against Saline County Circuit Court Judge Bobby McCallister.

The Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission said Tuesday that McCallister appears to have filed no more than tax returns since 1995, but said it isn't clear how much he may owe.

Attorneys for McCallister didn't immediately return phone calls for comment.

Commission director David Sachar said McCallister remains on the bench. If convicted, Sachar said McCallister faces admonishment, a reprimand or a recommendation that the state Supreme Court remove him from office.

Sachar said a special prosecutor is investigating the allegations of failing to pay state taxes. Internal Revenue Service spokesman Clay Sanford said he can't comment on whether the IRS is investigating.
