Oklahoma Judge Accused Of Pleasuring Himself In Court
State AG Seeks Judge's Removal From Bench
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson asked a state court Thursday to remove a Creek County judge from the bench for allegedly using a sexual device during court proceedings.
The petition asks the Oklahoma Court on the Judiciary to remove Judge Donald Thompson, who is accused of using a penis pump during court proceedings.
According to court papers filed by Edmondson, a court reporter told investigators she saw Thompson using the device more than a dozen times. Edmondson said the court reporter, Lisa K. Foster, was fired after Thompson learned she was cooperating with investigators.
Foster told investigators that she heard a noise from under Thompson's bench on several occasions. She also said she witnessed him engaging in improper sexual conduct 15 to 20 times.
A former juror who served in Thompson's court told Eyewitness News 5 Thursday that she was shocked when she heard the allegations.
"It doesn't seem believable," said Sharon Cox. "You think if you get into a courtroom, a judge should be dignified and you look up to a judge ... and I can't imagine this ever going on."
Edmondson said Thompson denies that he used the device in court but admits having it under the bench. According to the petition, Thompson testified that the penis pump was a "gag gift" from a friend.
Thompson could face a trial later this year.
