Thompson took a cue from Bill Clinton in the “Did you ever smoke marijuana” question (“yes, but I didn’t inhale”). He claimed he had never used the penis pump on himself to masturbate, but may have merely squeezed the handle a few times, absentmindedly of course. Officers had photographed the pump under Thompson’s bench desk in 2003 during a recess after seeing plastic tubing disappear under his robe during court. They also found semen on the judge’s robes, chair, or carpet under the bench.
I only want to know:
· … how did the semen manage to escape from the pump when…?
· … and how can a judge keep track of a proceeding in the throes of heightened sexual arousal, orgasm, and ejaculation? Imagine the mess in that robe when…
Never mind the speculative questions. And I apologize for the mental pictures they evoked. I don’t know how you’ll ever get those lurid images out of your thoughts. Can you ever forgive me, that is, can you forgive Judge Thompson?
Back to the facts. He said a friend had given him the pump as a joke. And he refused psychosexual testing.
The jury recommended a year in jail and $1000 fine. Judge C. Allen McCall gave Thompson four years and a $40,000 fine. I guess Allen felt punitive for Thompson’s making the judiciary a public laughing stock. Thompson had to register as a sex offender, a certain embarrassment to his wife and three grown children. And he may have forfeited his $80K annual pension.
At least now the public now know another way those voluminous robes serve judges – to hide autoerotic paraphernalia, like penis pumps.
Some people insist Thompson did nothing wrong; others say he got what he deserved. http://www.danzfamily.com/archives/2006/08/judge_donald_th.php
I called the Creek County Oklahoma jail today. The officer on duty told me the jail released Thompson on 7 June 2010, and that officers arrested him and took him to jail again, this time for stalking, on 3 March 2011, and released him the same day. Ex-judge Donald Thompson has had a hard time living a righteous life.
