Hey, Florida: It's time to yank Holli Bodner's psychology license!

January 9, 2012

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a licensed psychologist from Bradenton for illegally providing controlled substances to an inmate at the Sarasota County jail.

A corrections sergeant developed intelligence information that Holli Bodner, 51, of the 7300 block of Kensington Court, Bradenton, agreed to supply an inmate with Oxycodone and Lorazepam during prearranged visits at the jail, according to a news release.

Sheriff’s office detectives monitored four occasions in the month of December during which Bodner met with and supplied an inmate with narcotics. Detectives recovered the drugs from the inmate immediately after each meeting, according to the report.

Bodner was arrested Friday afternoon as she arrived at the jail for another scheduled appointment with the inmate.

Shewas charged with four counts of delivery of a controlled substance and four counts of introduction of a controlled substance into a correctional facility, all felonies.

She was released Saturday evening after posting $4,000 bond.

This is not Bodner's first time being on the wrong side of the law.

In March 2005, Bodner was convicted of perjury and sentenced to 10 weekends in jail for lying on forms to have her next-door neighbor involuntarily committed to a psychiatric ward.

Bodner had a year-long feud with neighbor Jean Pierre Villar about streetlights and dog poop before committing him to a mental-health center under Florida's Baker Act, allowing involuntary three-day commitments for psychological evaluations.

A prosecutor argued that Bodner's action in April 2003 contributed to the 41-year-old's death from a blood clot in November 2004. She pleaded no contest to the perjury charge and said she didn't mean any harm.

Erika Villar said her husband had chronic pain after Manatee County sheriff's deputies aggravated a work-related back injury when they forced him into a squad car during his involuntary detention.

In her petition to commit Villar, Bodner, 44, said he had abused his wife and child and threatened her boyfriend. Commitments are permitted when someone is a danger to themselves or others.

The state Health Department restricted her to working 15 hours a week with supervision.

I can't believe that some quack like Holli Bodner could get a Judge to sign an order for involuntary psychological evaluation without even properly identifying the man! Holli Bodner used the criminal record of a man with a similar name as her neighbor, to obtain the order, & nobody in Law Enforcement verified that they were incarcerating the right person??? This Judge should also be disbarred for not following protocol. The family should be able to receive financial compensation from the County or City administration that permitted the fraudulent order, the Judge, personally and Holli Bodner. Hopefully a competent Attorney has been consulted.The only silver-lining, is that Holli Bodner will never be allowed to (legally) practice Psychology. She should be incarcerated for several years for her crimes, but was instead allowed to "pay for her crimes" by surrendering her license to practice.

I just watched the episode on the ID Channel featuring this woman. How is she still allowed to practice? She more or less caused a man's death!

This story is one of the most disturbing things I have ever heard! I am a FL resident my entire life and continually disappointed in Judges and authorities here! It is a huge disappointment that such drastic and deadly measures are allowed to be taken and supported to the detriment of an innocent! That 'educated' idiot could not even spell his name right and I hope that judge has nightmares and is sleep deprived for the rest of his incompetent life! As far as Holli is concerned, wake the F up Florida and revoke that witch's license!

Ana, please get in touch with me.

I want to help and make sure she makes things right with your son's wife and daughter. My company is liquid Image Solutions. If you google that you will be able to contact me directly. Anyone else who has information regarding crimes and ethics violations that Bodner has committed, please reach out.

Why is she still practicing, why is she even out of prison the evil scum that she is. Vile trash will get her cummupance one day, karma is a bitch. She didn't even have the decency to offer a simple apology to the family she ruined, let alone pay JPs medical fees. It's not often I get outraged, but this story has me shaking with anger. Some justice system. Give her to Isis let them deal with the evil bitch.

I just saw the episode of fear thy neighbor. The fact that she still practiced is beyond me. What does this woman have to do to lose her license? She needs medical attention. The family should she her. She's out of her mind and evil. She owes the family an apology. I felt terrible for that family.

I want to see her hang for murder and those useless cops that where used as the weapon. If a guy is in a fucking back brace and crying out in pain your fucking conscience should have spoken to you that you are doing something evil and you need to stop!

After viewing a documentary about Holli Bodner and the neighbors she feuded with and since discovering on this documentary that she's a psychologist and the stunt she pulled I think to myself that it's terrible that psychologists can have the same power as authority figures but worse abuse their power so therefore I wonder why did she basically receive a "slap on the wrist?" Is it because she's a psychologist is it be cause she's wealthy and I'm not trying to sound gender biased but I do wonder if this psychologist received a lenient punishment because she's female and her victim is a male so therefore I wouldn't be surprised if this psychologist was a male and the victim was a female that the psychologist would have had the "book thrown at her or in this case him" so finally it's a long story but I feel it would be justice if and or when psychologists and psychiatrists are punished for their wrongdoing and if I permitted to type that Ms or Mrs Bodner appears to be a psychologist who herself needs psychological or psychiatric help and if you ask me she's not acting like a psychologist she is acting more like a "suckologist."Nuff said.
