      Dear Mr. Thompson: it’s not a legal fact until the Appellate Court says so.
      Sincerely,

        Spoke like a true bar brain. Any circuit court determination of guilt is NOT a factual finding. Only appellate courts make factual findings–therefore any sentencing by a circuit court is also not a factual sentencing. so where is it the you teach law?

        Nobody said it was a “legal fact,” you weirdo. The sun comes over the eastern horizon in the morning. That is a fact. It is not a legal fact. Your sophistry is so amazing you could work in the Holder Justice Department and order the angels to dance on the head of a pin. Jack Thompson, and you’re not, which is your problem.

    This is really terrible news. Judge Imperato is a good person, and a good judge. She is in my thoughts and prayers.

      Even good people make mistakes, like Judge Gisele Pollack………….hopefully once. But when you make the same mistake, you haven’t learned, or you need help.

      Once outside the courtroom, you’re just like the rest of us, and must abide by the same laws you are elected to enforce.

      I have the utmost respect for Judge Pollack for pleading guilty, for she knows she did wrong. Maybe Judge Imperato hasn’t learned yet, so my sympathy for her is more that she wasn’t honest the 2nd time.

      Hopefully Judges Pollack and Imperato will get the help they need.

    She simply luvs those Italian joints! Surprised she has been whacked long before this one . She should move to Sicily where she can guzzle until her heart’s content and stay on Man Hunt the rest of the time.

      It just bothers me that they were saying all these things about her being impaired. How could she be impaired, and yet she was able to walk in a perfectly steady and straight line for quite a distance and with her hands cuffed behind her back without ever wobbling or falling? I saw her booking pictures. They claimed her eyes were bloodshot and glassy but they were perfectly white and her eyes are naturally glassy. That I know. They also claimed her speech was slurred, but I heard it. Her speech was perfect in tone and pitch. Her answers to the cop’s questions were responsive, appropriate and intelligent. She was not all over the place or talking crazy. It is just terrible when people make such accusations with a straight face. For all the people who are rejoicing at her conviction, I ask you this question: How would her conviction make anyone’s life better, happier, or less miserable than they already are? When we wake up tomorrow, regardless of her conviction, we shall all continue to be miserable and have all the problems that are plaguing all of us already. No one should ever take pleasure in the misfortune of another human being. If you laugh at a person’s misfortune today, you might be next tomorrow. The downfall of a person is not the end of their life. Judge Imperato will not fall from this incident. This is just a temporary hitch in her life from which she shall emerge stronger. She has a whole lot going for her. She is brilliant, beautiful, has a good heart, and a great family. She shall overcome! We should all wish her and her family well. People should stop hiding under cover of anonymity to make inappropriate remarks and comments that they cannot stand behind. Everyone should either be quiet, or have the courage to put their name on any comment they author. I just did.

    Chief Judge Weinstein sticks up for yet another Broward County misfit, moves her to a civil division till things cool down and now this? Guess that didn’t work very well. Broward judges sure know how to work it.

      First of all I am quite suspicious that the Judge was set up by F.D.L.E., who watches the restaurant where she goes. They assume because of her position that she is connected to some nefarious individuals, maybe she just likes the food served there.?

      The Judge is a fair and honest jurist and she does not appear intoxicated in the video, as for her eyes they always look that way, if you never met her before how can testify as to what they looked like. If you read the last ten DUI arrests of the arresting officer they would all read the same old trite observations, bloodshot eyes, strong odor of alcohol, etc, etc…

      GUILTY ! These judges are soooo out of touch with the people that they pass judgement. She still got a pass; a deal she probably would not offer a recidivist DUI offender in her courtroom. If this happened in medicine she would be mandated to go into at least a black out locked down 30 day PRN program to save her license even with a first offense. Where is the Florida Bar?? How come they are not protecting we the people who are at the mercy of these impaired judges. Yes, she did not commit vehicular manslaughter; it is only a matter of time. She is grossly impaired. What has been done to rehabilitate her?? She does not deserve to be a judge or a practicing attorney. Take her robe and license. She deserves no better treatment than what she has given out. We the people are sick and tired of these self serving judges who blatantly skirt the law because of who they are and who they know; and, do it on our dollar. We the people are OUTRAGED. Start cleaning house; start with the disbarment of Imperato.

    She will have plenty of time to persue her extra-judicial nocturnal activities now. Sad, but true. These high and mighty blowhards in black just don’t get it. U play, u pay. Broward has more judges who think they are above the law than Carter’s has pills.

    These blowhards in black all need to find better things to do than drive while under the influence of intoxicants. With the rash of pill popping, drunk and mental problems exhibited by Broward County Judges, u wonder how they make it to work at all. Guess that’s just not on their list of priorities. Dump them all and replace them with people that take their obligations to the taxpayers seriously. It’s obvious that Judge Weinstein has more on his mind than keeping these drugged up judges in line. The last time I read anything about him he was concerned with installing double wide toilet seats in the judges chambers in the new courthouse. Does this guy do anything at all ? I mean, he doesn’t even have a docket like they do in other circuits. He’s somebody’s idea of a very bad joke.

      True Judges should be held to the highest accountability when it comes to morals, ethics, behavior, etc. but this was a great Judge. So, one wrong turn and it’s the gallows? C’mon people. Let he who is w/o sin cast the first stone…

    Looked pretty wobbly on the vid. Thought the cop was more than patient with her. She has no business on the bench. I can see why they found her guilty.

    The comments about the Chief Judge are ridiculous. The judges are either appointed by the governor or elected by the people of Broward County. The Chief Judge has no authority, of any kind, to fire or suspend a sitting judge. He has no authority to discipline or force them to seek help.

    It’s not very funny. Obviously this woman suffers from loneliness and drinks to self medicate. She is very lucky this didn’t turn out much worse. It may end her career, but she can now work on the rest of her life which looks like its in deficit.

    Forget all the personal insults and remember this. After a jury trial you get jail when you have any prior. She got a pass simply because she’s a judge.

    To push it to a jury trial was a big mistake. Broward judges think they’re going to play the system like they’ve been able to get away with thru the good old boy days in Broward, but in the end she got it handed to her by a jury of her peers.
    I can’t have much sympathy for Imperato when she could have sought help for her problem instead of somehow thinking through her arrogance she was going to beat the system.
    Now they’ll keep her in a civil division and hope she can survive the publicity. It was all over the news on every channel with her mug shot staring back at u.
    She should have accepted that she made a very bad mistake and taken the consequences like Judge Pollack.
    Three drunk or drugged Broward judges makes it look like it’s an epidemic now. I hope she learns her lesson from this, but somehow I doubt it.
    They think they’re part of some privileged class that are exempt from the laws they are supposed to be upholding. Judges Pollack, Watson and Imperato should be very ashamed of themselves.
    These Broward judges push the envelope to the edge and then expect everybody should feel sorry for them. It sends the wrong message and is indicative of the culture of sleazy moves that have become the norm for judges in Broward.
    There should be more oversight of these judges, their work schedules and their behavior.

      The trial was rigged–she did NOT have a jury of her peers–she had a jury of OUR peers. Her peers would sat there in their robes and have acquitted her

      Then it’s ok for a sitting judge to be moved to civil after a criminal conviction. Who’s kidding whom here? She should be either removed from the bench or suspended until she completes all the requisites of her sentence.

    Judge Imperato is a good judge and a good person. I hope she can recover from this and continue serving the people of Broward County as Circuit Judge, even if it is from the civil bench.

    Jumpin all over drunks now? Sure, broward has it’s share of judges that can’t hold it together for very long, but has it ever been any different with the exception of three broward judges all getting popped within such a short time? Maybe they should be required to blow before taking the bench. They’ve been blowing their own horns for so long, it shouldn’t be that much of an imposition and the taxpayers will be assured to get what they’re paying for. Judges are no different from anybody else who has a drinking problem. In broward they just act so sanctimonious about it when they get caught with their panties in a wad. I wish Imperato luck on this, but I think she’s got some more tough times coming on the heals of the other two bimbos.

    laura Chukwuma needs to remove her head form her own oraface as well as that of every other broward judge she’s been milking for an appointment to a case. It’s no big secret. They roll out people like her every time a broward judge screws up big time and need a word of support. Judges should not be driving drunk or drugged putting citizens at risk and certainly should not be hearing cases when they are fried. Broward judges need long overdue oversight. No doubt about it ,and we’ve had three recent broward judges that prove that point clearly.

      From: Laura Chukwuma
      Jim, no one “rolled me out” to defend anyone. I do not accept court-appointed cases from any judge or anyone else. I did not even put my name on the attorneys list for court-appointed cases. It was good you spoke your mind about what you thought was my motive in defending Judge Imperato because you provided me the opportunity to enlighten you on the true state of affairs. You now know that I stand to gain nothing from it but criticisms from people who disagree with my position. People like you and me should be encouraged to speak their minds without being personally attacked for it. I thank you for taking the time to read the comments on the blog and for your contribution to this conversation.

    It’s obvious there’s a very big problem within the rank and file of judges in Broward County. CJ Weinstein does nothing to set the proper tone with those judges he’s supposed to be supervising and doesn’t even carry a docket himself. The real question is: What is he doing? Being a judge in Broward County is not ceremonial position.
    He falls short of expressing any leadership qualities whatsoever in a culture in Broward where it’s every judge for himself and excuses are made for really bad behavior on behalf of its judges instead of recognizing there’s a problem with judges using and abusing intoxicants and doing something about it.
    He should be removed as Chief Judge and someone else tackle the problem that isn’t afraid to realize it’s a systemic problem that’s going to require something other than politics to solve it.
    These judges may all be great people, but they can’t be playing their games while on the public dime. It’s reached now dangerous levels.
    Don’t know Judge Imperato, but I think she’s made a mockery of our system of justice instead of taking responsibility for her actions. Are these really the kind of judges we need deciding cases in Broward County or anywhere else? I think resoundingly the answer is no. Broward County should have no place for this kind of behavior from its judges.

    I agree is pretty quick to throw all the judges into the same basket. There are a number of them who are doing their job and are leading an exemplary life. If you are a lawyer, would you like your client to be likened to every criminal in prison? Well, maybe you would.

    Its hard to understand how a member of the judiciary goes on trial for a criminal offense, gets convicted and then is simply shifted from criminal to civil as if that excuses the crime. She cant be punished for exercising her constitutional right but right now she’s a convicted criminal. Misdemeanor or not. A good, bad, or indifferent judge she’s still a judge sitting in judgment with a criminal conviction. Pollick is a problem but its unlikely she will be treated differently What’s also puzzling is how Stephanie Kraft goes to trial on a court information get convicted of a felony for abusing her political office and then gets probation afterwards. Anyone else who’s not a judge or a politician would’ve been sentenced to jail time. It’s really interesting that Destry made a big show of refusing to release Kraft and then not only gives her an incredible break but probably bought her lunch and drove her home. Such is life in this County. All three of these judicial miscreants should be removed from the bench. (imagine the jury pool sitting whispering to each other, “hey, that’s the drunk judge”.) Great just great.

    I have absolutely no sympathy for judges who can’t follow the law. Judge Imperato has shown she has lite regard for this principle by her actions to date or that she even regrets her mistakes.

    To Laura Chukwuma –
    You are and always will be a class act. It takes a certain amount of cowardice to anonymously take pot shots. These are the same losers who smile in your face when they see you around the courthouse. Thank you for courageously voicing your view, knowing that it would only be a matter of time before the insults would start.
    I have no comments one way or another about Imperato and her present circumstances, however it is interesting that those same people who constantly criticize the justice system as a whole are ruthless critics of Imperato for exercising her right to a trial. They clearly live in glass houses.
    Judge or not, it is still her right and she must now live with the consequences (which likely will cost her her career).
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.

      And it is well known that his comments did NOT “known to be false or with reckless disregard for the truth.”

    She’s been a train wreck administering her kind of moral tripe from the bench for a long time. No different than a few others. She jut got caught with her panties down around her ankles this time. Of course she has a right to a trial. She’s just been in Broward County for too long where she thought being a judge makes you entitled to do anything you want and get away with it.
    Guess she found it’s different in other circuits. Another whacked out Broward judge that got it handed to her when she’s used to being the one handing it out. This ones gonna cost her if I had to guess.

    Somebody ought to tell Chukwuma she’s not going to get any appointments from Imperato if she’s in civil … I notice Chukwuma wasn’t hired to represent Judge Imperato in the defense of her DUI case and I don’t think the result would have been any different anyway. Brown nosing don’t get you what it used to.
    Imperato’s case looked like a dead loser from the get-go so I don’t know what Chukwuma is talking about. Like she could have won it for her or something? Can you just see that one happening in conservative WPB? The cop I believe had over 900 DUI arrests under his belt and the eye witnesses call-in made it pretty clear she was all over the place. Bad vid too both on the road and at the BAT. The “Bad Dream” comment didn’t help her either. Not cool. I’ve always liked her as a judge if you wanted to move a case along. It’s too bad she got scrambled. You win some and you lose some. She took her chances and she took a nose dive. The list continues to grow in Broward apparently. Hiding her in civil ain’t going to make it go away. Chief Judge Weinstein hasn’t done her any favors even though that’s his intent. He’s nothing but another Broward Big Top Clown Show.
