Judge Donald Thompson — remember him? The Oklahoma state court judge who was packing a penis pump underneath that robe? Well, here’s the latest development in his fall from grace:
A former judge convicted of exposing himself while presiding over jury trials by using a sexual device under his robe was sentenced Friday to four years in prison….
At his trial this summer, his former court reporter, Lisa Foster, testified that she saw Thompson expose himself at least 15 times during trial between 2001 and 2003. Prosecutors said he also used a device known as a penis pump during at least four trials in the same period….
Police built a case against the judge after a police officer testifying in a 2003 murder trial saw a piece of plastic tubing disappear under Thompson’s robe. During a lunch break, officers took photographs of the pump under the desk.
Investigators later checked the carpet, Thompson’s robes and the chair behind the bench and found semen, according to court records.
