AUSTIN, TEXAS- A complaint was filed against a judge who ordered a man to marry his girlfriend as a condition of probation.

The Freed From Religion group filed the complaint against Smith County Court-at-Law Judge Randall Rogers with the Texas State Commission on Judicial Conduct. That group advocates the separation of church and state. The judge gave Josten Bundy 30-days to marry Elizabeth James or face 15-days in jail on a guilty plea for misdemeanor assault.

Bundy admits he punched James' ex-boyfriend twice in the jaw for "saying disrespectful things" about her.

Judge Rogers also ordered Bundy to write a bible verse 25 times a day.
