Broward County Judge Gisele Pollack

A day after a hearing panel from the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission

recommended the removal of Broward County Circuit Judge Gisele Pollack over

alcohol adiction problems; the judge has submitted her resignation from the bench

effective immediately.

 

The hearing panel released its findings on Monday and said Pollack was

presently unfit to remain on the bench."

 

The panel said Judge Pollack violated multiple provisions of the Florida Code of Judicial Conduct starting when she took the bench while under the influence of alcohol on December 17, 2013.

 

The JQC panel said she agreed not to drink and signed a stipulation which gave her the chance to remain on the bench as long as she complied with the conditions set forth by the Investigative Panel.

 

The JQC panel said Pollack then took the bench again intoxicated just days after

multiple lawyers were put in place to ensure her compliance with the program.

 

Then on May 1, the JQC said Pollack left her treatment facility and was arrested

for DUI after causing an accident.

Former Judge Gisele Pollack, who resigned Jan. 6 before the Florida Supreme Court could remove her from the Broward County Court bench, is returning to the job she had before she became a judge, assistant public defender.

 

Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein said that Pollack will work in the office's Early Representation Unit, representing clients who can't afford private attorneys between first appearance and arraignment. She'll be making less than half the annual salary she was paid as a Broward County Judge from 2004 until her suspension last year.

 

A recovering alcoholic, Pollack suffered a relapse that became public when she took the bench drunk twice in three months, then got into an accident while driving drunk last May.

 

She pleaded guilty to the drunk driving charge and was sentenced to probation, but her decision to accept legal responsibility and civil liability for her conduct was not enough to convince the state's Judicial Qualifications Commission to let her stay on the bench.
