A Gag Gift?

All Rise!

Oklahoma suspects judge of masturbating in court

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Oklahoma's attorney
general wants a state judge removed on suspicion he frequently
masturbated and used a device for enhancing erections while his
court was in session, a spokesman for the office said

Attorney General Drew Edmondson filed a petition
Wednesday with state judicial authorities seeking the removal
of Sapulpa District Judge Donald Thompson, 57, for "conduct
constituting an offense involving moral turpitude in violation
of the Oklahoma Constitution."

Thompson was not immediately available for comment. The
judge, elected to the bench in the state's nonpartisan judicial
elections, is based about 80 miles northeast of
Oklahoma City.

In the petition, the attorney general charged Thompson used
a penis pump, a device billed as providing sexual pleasure and
promising better erections and larger penis size, during trials
and exposed himself to a court reporter several times while
masturbating on the bench.

"On one occasion, Ms. (Lisa) Foster (Thompson's court
reporter for 15 years), saw Judge Thompson holding his penis up
and shaving underneath it with a disposable razor while on the
bench," the petition reads.

Several witnesses, including jurors in Thompson's court and
police officers called to testify in trials, said in the
petition they heard the "swooshing" sound of a penis pump
during trials and saw the judge slumped in his chair, with his
elbows on his knees, working the device. The witnesses said the
pump sounded like a blood pressure cuff being pumped up.

According to the petition, Thompson admitted he had a penis
pump under the bench during a murder trial but he told
investigators it was a gag gift from a friend.
The petition also charges Thompson with firing his former
court reporter after she cooperated with investigators.
