Too bad the Broward County Gestapo agents don't go after the hardcore felons and violent criminals the way they went after this "serious threat to society". We should expect nothing less of a travesty of justice in a county/state where they prosecute 12 year olds as adults.
There is no justice for the poor.

What would you expect from a judge who is rich enough to be able to BUY her seat by loaning her campaign $260,000 in 2006!
We get what we pay for!

This poor woman was a victim - shot by an ex-boss, left paralyzed, ends up with a jerk for a neighbor, and now lands in jail for missing a court date.

God Bless Amerika - land of the illegal immigrants and home of the rich and corrupt.

I truly hope this judge does not get relected. What is this world coming to?

We understand she broke the law. But 6 months in jail for pissing off the judge is a little extreme even if she is a parapeligic with multible health issues to boot.
I hope the old bag has a problem with the law when she's not in her god almighty chair of justice for all.

Judge Garcia Woods is a great Judge, the woman should have shown up for court as required and this would not have been necessary. Why is this so hard to understand?

Finally and intelligent criticism. The lady didn't show up for her court date and was jailed for contempt. This happens all the time. Doesn't matter if she's disabled or owns a dog named Fudge. Question is, why such a harsh sentence unless there is more to this?

The story obviously is presenting a favorable light on this court date skipper and I'm guessing there is more to her incarceration than is being reported.

A bunny and a dog named Fudge? What does that have to do with anything?

So if she guns down her neighbor, we should turn the other way because she is disabled, has a dog named Fudge, and a rabbit named Bun?

If I ever end up in court, I want you on my jury...

The dog is NOT a service dog; it's a pet. The only friends she has are either niave to her or her drug dealers. This story is complete BS and a sympathy cry for all the lawsuits against her... did you read the 1st article about her? How about why the former boss shot her and then killed himself... get an education on the facts before you make an opinion.

This is the most disgusting and despicable act I have ever heard about. This woman in jail is sick, a victim, and can not be treated as a normal person. It 100% reinforces the fact that the police and the judges are low level vermin. No one in their right mind picks on the down trodden over a ridiculous administrative issue of not showing up in court. I hope the judge becomes wheelchair bound and loses her legs and the cops who inflicted the torture on her rot in hell and get what they deserve. This judge should be removed immediately with her pension eliminated and charges brought huge damages against her.

This is a total disgrace.

Oh! This is that same lady who the Sun-Sentinel wrote about where her housing association wanted her out because of her dog. LOL. come to find out, all she had to do was fill out the paper work but she refused to. What a nut job this lady is. Anyone know the scoop on the ex-boss/shooting. What happened there? I'm sure everything isn't as rosy as they are painting it here.
