OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma judge faces indecent exposure charges for
allegedly masturbating in court.
Investigators in Oklahoma City charge that Judge Donald Thompson used
a device called a "penis pump" under his robe during trials.
Thompson denies the allegations. He says the pump was a gag gift from
a hunting buddy on his 50th birthday.
Thompson retired from the bench in August in the face of the
embarrassing allegations, but now prosecutors have decided to press
Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson expects there will be a
string of appeals from defendants who were tried before Thompson,
including those who faced murder charges. Investigators said they've
recovered DNA samples from carpet, the judge's chair and his robes.
