Is this girl stupid, or what ? How could she ever become a judge was the first question that came to mind. Second, is this funny or sad.

Now the rest of these officials, starting with congress.

Yep, whats worse is shes already back in office-

"The state Board of Judicial Conduct had recommended that Ballentine be permanently relieved of her duties. The board also recommended that Ballentine pay back the $104,330 in salary — and more than $13,000 in medical benefits — she had received since first being suspended.

Instead, the discipline court suspended Ballentine without pay for three and a half months, through May 31. She owes about $20,000, according to the order.

Ballentine is allowed to keep salary she earned from February 2012 through February 2013, along with benefits, according to the order.

"The severe discipline recommended by the Board is not necessary in order to preserve the integrity of our judicial system and the public's confidence in it," the order states.

Some legal professionals say that logic will be a tough sell."

This is really disturbing......not only because not many ATS'rs have nothing to say or an opinion about this incident but also that a high level decision is made in favour of her.

There is a question right away.... The fact that she (an assuming intelligent woman) commited these petty crimes while taking the risc to lose a well paid job and the personal investment to come this far.

The question is.. did she know on forehand 'they' will not take actions against her..Maybe because she knows something or because she delivered some special service which would make her untouchable?
