Daughter of Florida Supreme Court Justice Arrested for FL DUI

The 23-year old daughter of Florida Supreme Court Justice Jorge Labarga was arrested for driving under the influence early Monday. Stephanie Labarga was stopped for speeding and having her blinker on while driving on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach around 1:40 in the morning.

Labarga reportedly had bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol. She admitted to having been drinking, and on the way to be booked for Florida DUI asked the officer to let her go if she got a ride. Two breath tests registered a BAC of .173% and .177%, more than twice the legal limit.

Jorge Labarga became a Supreme Court Justice in 2009 after serving 13 years as judge for the 15th Circuit Court. His office said that ethics rules forbid him from commenting on a pending case of any kind.

If convicted of DUI in Florida, Labarga faces up to $1000 in fines, $406 in court costs, mandatory enrollment in an alcohol education program, attendance at a victim impact panel, 50 hours of community service, six months of probation, loss of vehicle for 10 days, suspension of driver
