AG Bondi on spiders, her four-hour commute and wedding planning




As the state's first female attorney general, Pam Bondi juggles her workweek in Tallahassee with a commute to Tampa every weekend with her dog.

A fourth-generation Floridian, she grew up in Temple Terrace and still calls Hyde Park home.

At age 45, she's an 18-year veteran of the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office, having prosecuted murder and rape cases, served as felony bureau chief, and a member of the internal homicide, vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter committees.

But away from all of that legal stuff, Bondi and Luke, her 165-pound St. Bernard, spend time with local family and friends, including fiance Greg Henderson, a Tampa ophthalmologist with four grown children. We talked to Bondi about everything from iPhone apps to children to one of her biggest "trials" yet — a spring wedding.

A Sunday conversation with Bondi here.
