TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - An investigative panel says an Ocala judge should be reprimanded for habitual tardiness but that a religious comment he made was an isolated incident.
Circuit Judge William Singbush agreed with the recommendation in a stipulation filed Friday with the Florida Supreme Court.
It was signed by Singbush and the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission's investigative panel.
The agreement says Singbush should keep his job but appear before the high court for a public reprimand.
He agreed that his repeated tardiness violated a judicial canon saying judges should act promptly and efficiently.
Singbush once comment about a mistake he made in a lawsuit over an airport used by actor John Travolta by saying he knew of only one perfect person "and for that we murdered him," a reference to Jesus Christ.
