    A Miami-Dade juvenile judge who used a racial slur to describe a black defendant has resigned.

    Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Stephen Millan resigned from the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, according to a Friday news release.

    Millan used a slur to describe a black defendant in October 2016. In another recorded instance, he referred to friends and family members of a black defendant as "thugs."

    Documents filed with the Florida Supreme Court show that Millan admitted to twice using demeaning language. Millan apologized for the comments and attended a racial bias seminar.
