The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is retired Oklahoma Judge Donald Thompson. He gets the award for the following.
A former judge convicted of exposing himself while presiding over jury trials by using a sexual device under his robe was sentenced to four years in prison. The defendant, Donald D. Thompson of Creek County, had spent almost 23 years on the bench and had been a state legislator before retiring from the court in 2004. Mr. Thompson, 59, was convicted last month of four felony courts of indecent exposure. Mr. Thompson, a married man with three adult children, testified that the device, a penis pump, had been given to him as a joke by a friend and that he may have absentmindedly squeezed its handle during court cases but had never used it to masturbate. He was also ordered to pay a $40,000 fine.Thank you for small miracles that Thompson is off the bench. He's aa disgrace, but here in Florida he'd probably be still hearing cases. Its rare when a judge disciplined and even rarer when they actually get convicted of a crime.
Ex-Judge Donald Thompson is today's knucklehead of the day.
