Broward County prosecutor suspended after drug arrest
Molena Mompoint arrested Monday night in Wilton Manors
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – An assistant state attorney in Broward County has been suspended without pay after her arrest on a drug charge.
Molena Mompoint was arrested Monday night in Wilton Manors on a charge of methamphetamine possession and given two traffic citations.
A spokesman for the Broward County state attorney's office said Wednesday that the governor's office has assigned the case to another judicial circuit to avoid a conflict.
Mompoint joined the office in January 2013. She was most recently assigned to misdemeanor county court.
