FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A Broward County judge has handed in her resignation following a DUI arrest.

The Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1GxWfoB ) reports Judge Lynn Rosenthal’s last day will be Oct. 31.

Authorities say Rosenthal showed signs of impairment when she arrived at the courthouse on May 27, 2014. She sideswiped a parked patrol car and drove into a parking lot gate.

She agreed to a 90-day suspension without pay, but the Florida Supreme Court ordered a full hearing. The court wanted additional information regarding any misconduct that occurred during the investigation.

She was initially charged with DUI, but it was reduced to reckless driving.



Rosenthal has maintained she was given an incorrect dose of a sleep aid and that she had lapse in judgment due to a “personal family crisis.”
