Ok, this kinda stuff is really becoming overwhelming..What happened to good old fiction? Yeah, I think I'd much prefer a good book over reading the news..Books are much tamer and unimaginative..How does someone get off sexually while presiding over a court case?<br>_____________________________________<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/08/18/judge.sentenced.ap/index.html">www.cnn.com/2006/US/08/18...index.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Judge jailed for exposing himself during trials</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>BRISTOW, Oklahoma (AP) -- 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.<br><br>Donald Thompson had spent almost 23 years on the bench and had served as a state legislator before retiring from the court in 2004. He showed no reaction when he was sentenced.<br><br>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.<br><br>Thompson, 59, was convicted last month of four felony courts of indecent exposure for incidents that took place in his Creek County courtroom.<br><br>Judge C. Allen McCall denied a defense motion asking that Thompson be allowed to remain free pending an appeal. Thompson also was ordered to pay a $40,000 fine.<br><br>Thompson, a married father of three grown children, testified that the pump was given to him as a joke by a longtime hunting and fishing buddy.<br><br>"It wasn't something I was hiding," he said.<br><br>He said he may have absentmindedly squeezed the pump's handle during court cases but never used it to masturbate.<br><br>Foster told authorities that she saw Thompson use the device almost daily during the August 2003 murder trial of a man accused of shaking a toddler to death. <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>A whooshing sound could be heard on Foster's audiotape of the trial. </em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END-->When jurors asked the judge about the sound, Thompson said he hadn't heard it but would listen for it.<br><br>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.<br><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Investigators later checked the carpet, Thompson's robes and the chair behind the bench and found semen, according to court records.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>Carmelia Brossett, a senior probation officer for the state Department of Corrections, said in a presentencing report that Thompson refused to undergo psychosexual testing.<br><br>"Thompson's denial of the offense would likely present difficulty, if not inability for treatment providers to provide meaningful and beneficial sex-offender treatment," she said.<br><br>The jury recommended a sentence of one year in prison and a $10,000 fine on each count. The jury foreman has said it was the jury's intent that Thompson serve the full sentence. <p>____________________<br>Some are born to sweet delight, some are born to endless night.</p><i></i>

From an <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://p216.ezboard.com/frigorousintuitionfrm33.showMessage?topicID=104.topic">earlier story:</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Thompson's former court reporter, Lisa Foster, wiped away tears as she described tracing an unfamiliar "sh-sh" in the courtroom to her boss. She testified that between 2001 and 2003 she saw Thompson expose himself at least 15 times.<br><br>"I was really shocked and I was kind of scared because it was so bizarre," said Foster.<br><br>She testified that during a trial in 2002, <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>she heard the pump during the emotional testimony of a murdered toddler's grandfather.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>The grandfather "was getting real teary-eyed, and the judge was up there pumping on that pump," she said. "It was sickening."</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--><br><br>The most disturbing aspect to this story, which is usually lost in the weirdness and even low comedy of most accounts, is just what was getting this judge off. <p></p><i></i>

I don't want to name names (partly cos I am not sure which one), but when my old man was a barrister in Tasmania there was one judge he said used to look at porn mags while presiding, and retire to his chambers for a wank.<br><br>Might have said that before.<br><br> <p></p><i></i>
