Bad reviews, shaky mental health probably won’t keep Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Brim off bench
Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Brim still collects her regular paycheck — $181,929 annually — seven months after her courthouse tussle with a sheriff’s deputy and her suspension from the bench for erratic behavior.
Despite the bad publicity and thumbs-down reviews of her work by fellow attorneys in many bar groups, voters will likely give her another six years on the bench.
That’s because it’s rare for a sitting circuit court judge to lose a re-election bid. It’s happened just once in 22 years.
