Judge Resigns After Alleged Relationship with Prosecutor

A Florida judge has stepped down from the bench after details about an alleged inappropriate relationship with a prosecutor continued to be revealed. Judge Ana Gardiner was accused of exchanging hundreds of phone calls and emails with a prosecutor who was trying a death penalty case in front of Judge Gardiner. 

Florida’s Judicial Qualifications Commission had launched an investigation into the matter. The judge allegedly began a relationship with the prosecutor back in March 2007, when the case was being tried. The individual sentenced in that case is now set to have a new trial as a result of the accusations.
