Former Ventura County Judge Robert C. Bradley asked a state panel Wednesday to allow him to return to the bench on a part-time basis. The 58-year-old jurist was suspended last year after two drunk-driving convictions. He violated the terms of his probation four times, mostly by drinking. But standing before the Commission on Judicial Performance during an hourlong hearing in San Francisco, Bradley urged the panel to give him another chance. "I still have good days and bad days," he said.

State prosecutors have urged the Commission on Judicial Performance to ban Judge Robert C. Bradley from ever hearing cases, describing his drunk conduct last year as unprecedented. Bradley, 58, and now retired, was arrested twice for drunk driving and four additional times for alcohol-related probation violations between December 1997 and August 1998. His arrests and subsequent suspension from the Ventura County Superior Court effectively ended Bradley's 15-year judicial career.

Admitting his drinking problem is destroying his life, Judge Robert C. Bradley said Tuesday he knows his judicial career is probably over and that he may never be able to practice law again.

"I'm devastated," said Bradley, 57.
