A Killeen municipal election judge was indicted by the Bell County Grand Jury earlier this week, city staff announced Friday.

Klaus Michael Adam, 77, was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke in Killeen with a $20,000 bail Friday. Adam was booked at the Killeen city jail, said city spokeswoman Hilary Shine. He was released on a bond. Adam is charged with criminal attempt illegal voting, a state jail felony, according to the Texas election code. The Herald requested a booking mug of Adam, which was not immediately released.
