FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo judge who is facing a suspension over sexual harassment allegations says he won't seek re-election.

East Central District Court Judge Wickham Corwin makes the announcement in a letter to the Cass County Bar Association obtained by The Associated Press. In it, he writes that he has enjoyed the job, but not the publicity.

Corwin did not immediately respond to a message left at his office.

Corwin's term ends Dec. 31 of next year.

Corwin is accused of trying to start an affair with his former court reporter. The woman has never filed a formal complaint but the issue went before a disciplinary panel of the North Dakota Supreme Court.

The state Judicial Conduct Commission has recommended Corwin be suspended for two months.
