Judicial Qualifications Commission

A Broward County judge with a history of alcohol problems is being recommended for removal from the bench. Judge Gisele Pollack has been a judge since 2004, overseeing low-level cases in the county's misdemeanor drug court.

Pollack admitted being drunk in the courtroom in December 2013. She agreed to stop drinking alcohol altogether, but the same thing happened a few months later.

Broward County Judge Gisele Pollack is asking the Judicial Qualifications Commission to give her a second chance,following a string of alcohol-related incidents, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
