Zoobia Hussain, 32, first appeared at Manchester Magistrates' Court last month charged with criminal damage.
She said she was "intimidated and deeply embarrassed" after magistrate Ian Murray refused to deal with her case because of identification issues.
Hussein was found guilty and will be sentenced on 24 July.
She was accused of causing damage to a council house in Longsight after her family was thrown out for rent arrears in January this year.
Mr Murray is being investigated by the Manchester Magistrates' Advisory Committee after Ms Hussain's lawyer complained about him leaving the court.
He has until Thursday to respond officially to the complaint, but has already volunteered not to sit as a magistrate while the inquiry takes place.
