Judge John Renke III Removed From Bench
Getting a whooping 90% of your campaign contributions from your father is a big no-no when the total is $95,800. That's just a tad bit over the $500 limit. Judge John Renke III has been removed from the bench by the Florida Supreme Court.
We conclude that there is clear and convincing evidence in support of the findings of fact of the JQC on all charges. For the reasons stated above, John Renke III is hereby removed as a judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit, effective upon this opinion becoming final. We direct that Renke pay the costs of these proceedings. See In re Hapner, 737 So. 2d 1075, 1077 (Fla. 1999). We remand this case to the JQC for a determination of the amount of such costs.
I'm sure Renke's dad can pay the bill.
