The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications found Judge Bennington guilty of the following misconduct.


  • Abused her judicial power
  • Sentenced defendant to jail w/o any indication when he would be released
  • Conducted sentencing hearing w/o prosecutor being present
  • Engaged in public confrontation with father of her children by using profanity and a racial slur
  • Engaged in a continuing pattern of misconduct
  • Repeatedly brought the judiciary into disrepute
  • Failed to adjudicate cases fairly and impartially
