State Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff
Danna Bogdanoff, the 19-year-old daughter of Fort Lauderdale-based State Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, was arrested on four felony charges in Miami-Date County late last week.

The police report hasn't yet been released, but according to our sister paper to the south, Miami New Times, Bogdanoff faces felony charges of third-degree grand theft, burglary to an unoccupied conveyance, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of burglary tools.

She also faces two misdemeanor charges of possessing drug paraphernalia and criminal mischief.

It's yet unknown what she's gettin' high on, but Sen. Bogdanoff told the Sun-Sentinel that she bailed her out of jail and took her to a rehab center for the second time.

The senator refused to comment further on the "personal family matter."

Sen. Bogdanoff, a Republican, was named legislative MVP by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and was the 2003 Mother of the Year from the Healthy Mother-Healthy Babies Coalition of Broward County.

She also told the Sentinel that legislation she continuously pushes for treatment of drug offenders instead of long prison terms has "absolutely nothing" to do with her daughter.

Well she has my vote and it's true before getting sent to prison send them to drug rehabs. Thats what we need, people don't realize it could be your mother, daughter, sister,aunt,dad, brother anyone close to and believe it can be well hidden till it's to late Im a mother of two, was a nurse and living the all american dream until I became addicted to painkillers it destroyed my life. Believe from being on the inside I can tell you a great deal of things but the main one is they can not afford to house everyone..!! I was convicted of drug traffiking and was not traffiking but because of the way the florida state statute is worded they gave me 3 yrs prison, 5 yrs probation and a 50,000 dollar fine for LORATAB !!! We need to stand up as a community and fight this.!!! This isnt fighting the war on drugs because wen they send u to prison they dont give u help, and then set u up for failure upon ur release ...!!!

This type of thing happens every day, but when you have a person in the Senate that can change the Law to fix thing before your their child goes to court, it that  really justice, See the Law Danna Bogdanoff is passing, to get her daughter off felony changes. by Ring CoSponsors: Bogdanoff, Joyner, Lynn, Rich  CS Sponsors: JudiciarySummaryGeneral Misdemeanor Pretrial Substance Abuse Programs; Providing that a person who is charged with a nonviolent, nontraffic-related misdemeanor and identified as having a substance abuse problem or a person who is charged with certain other designated misdemeanor offenses, and who has previously been convicted of a felony, may qualify for participation in a misdemeanor pretrial substance abuse program, etc. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2012 Our tax dollars are spent on helping this people make law to  protect their family, as well as their friends. They could care less about you are me. These law makers wait until there is an personal issue with their life and make new laws to support their cause. These are the people we voted for, really!!!

Ellyn has been a foster mother, adoptive parent, and guardian ad Litem for over 20yrs. She has devoted her life to helping children. I applaud her for record and hope her family and her daughter can make it through this difficult time.

i'm sorry senator Bogdanoff that the media released this information. Quite frankly this has nothing to do w/ ellen's ablity to govern. I think its a shame that people would go after ellen like this. You can lead a horse to water but can't make them drink it. Your daughter can go into what they call drug court, follow the rules , adhere to the specifications, and this would be removed from her daughter's record. pretrial intervention, etc. Run all charges concurrent, and rehab is the best place for this young girl. i wish all I had to do was go to rehab, and make everything better. i tried that once , yep, judge didn't by it though. Stated that i was healthier than a horse-( not kidding). good luck to this young girl. Time heals all wounds.....

She did not forge scripts. Get your info right and can't believe everything you hear!

Robert Walsh is an asshole!

Oh yeah Bob, it really is that simple. The girl has a real problem and you make the solution sound so trivial. To you the problem is not her daughter's issues but the fact the press released the arrest info. Long term that info is meaningless. What matters is her daughter responding to the help she will be provided. You are such a pathetic asshole!
