We’ve all had a hook-up or two that we’d like to forget. “Didn’t you smash that beast Michelle when we were freshmen?” “Me? Nahhhhh, son.” *Eyes dart back and forth suspiciously*
But it’s rare that an old hook-up will ruin your life in this dramatic of a fashion.
Local 10 reports that former Broward County Judge Ana Gardiner has been disbarred after an investigation revealed that she was banging more than gavels during the 2007 murder trial of Omar Loureiro. Greatest joke ever?
It turns out that Gardiner and the prosecuting attorney, Howard Scheinberg, were partying together like a couple of horned out college kids throughout the case. Between March 23 and August 24, the pair exchanged 949 cell phone calls and 471 text messages. You know based on that stat alone that this is an affair between two old people. If this had been a younger couple it would’ve been more like 2,725 text messages, 2 phone calls, and 134 snapchats.
Gardiner and Scheinberg knocking boots literally saved Omar Loureiro’s life. After all this hook-up nonsense came to light, they gave the dude a retrial, and his death penalty verdict ended up getting knocked down to life in prison. How many people can say that they owe their life to someone getting laid?
If you think this case is weird as is, how ’bout the fact that Gardiner’s not even with Scheinberg at this point, but has since married the defense attorney who represented her during her disbarment trial! This chick seriously should’ve canceled her subscription to LawyerLove.com a long time ago.
