The mugshots of Broward Judges Cynthia Imperato, Gisele Pollack and Lynn Rosenthal ()
The actions of three Broward Circuit judges, charged with driving under the influence, have left a black eye on the Broward judiciary prompting Chief Broward Circuit Judge Peter Weinstein to issue assurances to the public about judicial accountability.
“I want to assure the people of Broward County that the judges serving you are hardworking, conscientious and do not condone in any fashion any sort of impairment or substance abuse that would prevent their handling of each case that comes before them with the utmost care, consideration and attention that every case deserves,” he said.
Circuit Judge Cynthia Imperato was arrested for drunken driving in Boca Raton. County Court Judge Gisele Pollack was arrested in Plantation following a collision with injury to the other driver. And most recently, Circuit Judge Lynn Rosenthal was arrested at the judge’s parking lot gate after deputies reported she hit the gate and a patrol car.
