POLICE CHIEF'S EX-WIFE RELEASED FROM JAIL
Apr 1, 2010
The wife of Ft. Lauderdale Police Chief Frank Adderley is now home free after serving 181 days in jail. Eleanor Adderley was sentenced in October to nine months behind bars for shooting at her husband. Eleanor left the Broward County Jail just after 3:00 a.m. Thursday. Eleanor shot at her husband in their home in July 2008 over an affair he was having... At her sentencing last year, a remorseful Eleanor explained that she was the one her family and friends always leaned on and didn't know how to ask for help when she needed it most. Adderley's original charge of aggravated assault with a firearm carried a mandatory 20-year term of imprisonment. She pleaded no contest to aggravated assault without a firearm and a charge of using a gun in an occupied building, eliminating the mandatory 20-year sentence. Police say in she shot at her husband while he was lying in bed in their Plantation home. He was unharmed, but she continued shooting while she chased after him as he ran to a neighbor's house. That neighbor was also Adderley's best friend. It was then that she broke down, telling her neighbor that she was on the verge of killing herself. Psychologists who testified said it appeared she was suffering from severe depression and this violent outburst was a one time incident. The couple separated after the shooting incident; Frank Adderley filed for divorce. Their 16-year-old son lived with him while his mother was in jail. The two will now share custody. [LINK]
