State authorities are beginning a formal proceeding against a Camden County judge.

The Judicial Qualifications Commission is moving against Associate Probate Judge Shirley Wise.

She's accused of violating nine counts.

Those include making a county employee submit false invoices, accepting bribes, forgery, illegally preparing marriage licenses and others.

Wise has 30 days to send a written response.

After that, there'll be a "discovery period" before she faces a hearing.
