The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Broward Circuit Judge Lawrence Korda. He gets the award for the following.
Broward Circuit Judge Lawrence Korda is facing a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession after city police officers said they busted him for allegedly smoking pot in a Hollywood park Sunday afternoon.Just one more Broward County Judge who thinks he is above the law. Here is a rundown of the other Knucklhead Judges in that county.
At about 2 p.m. Sunday, three officers who were in Stanley Goldman Memorial Park noticed Korda smoking a joint while sitting on the ground next to a tree in the park, Hollywood police spokesman Capt. Tony Rode said.
"They said they smelled a very strong odor of what they found to be marijuana," Rode said. "They followed the smell to a gentleman sitting under a tree. He was actively smoking the marijuana cigarette as they approached him."
The officers, who were in plain clothes and exercising while on-duty as permitted by department policy, said the joint tested positive for marijuana, Rode said. Most people accused of smoking pot are issued a ticket instead of being arrested, he said.
"The overwhelming majority of people who are detained for a marijuana cigarette are given a notice to appear," Rode said.
The judge, who lives in Hollywood, was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession. Police records said Korda had one marijuana cigarette.
First we have the presiding judge Dale Ross
