Jury In Ex-Judge's Case Sees Photos

Graphic photos and testimony marked the second day of trial for a former Creek County [OK] judge accused of masturbating while on the bench.

Retired District Judge Donald D. Thompson is on trial on four felony indecent-exposure charges, alleging he used a penis pump to masturbate during trials.

Authorities also claim he shaved his scrotum during one trial.

Wednesday's court session opened with testimony from Michael Dean, an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agent, who searched Thompson's courtroom bench and his office for traces of fluid. That search was made on Jan. 7, 2005, four months after Thompson retired amid the allegations.

Dean told the court he examined Thompson's courtroom seat and the carpet under his bench, and by plain eyesight was able to find several suspicious stains.

Special prosecutor Pattye High produced a series of photos for the jury, showing stains found by Dean. In the first photo, dried, milky-white drip marks could be seen under the bottom edge of the courtroom seat.

That's freakin' disgusting. Details here from TulsaWorld.com. My earlier postings about Judge Thompson are here and here.
