Okla. judge found guilty of exposing himself in courtroom

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
This is the article I read: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060630/...NlYwNzc3JlbA--
The judge was found guilty of using a penis pump during trials. His defense attorney said the device was a prank present. Do any of you have any articles that offer more evidence? I guess the jury heard enough to convict, but I know how very fickle juries can be.
If it is true, do you feel the judge should be judged more harshly because he showed a greater disregard for the bench, since he knew more than most, how improper his behavior was?

I think the court of Public Opinion had already punished him.

It is no more improper than Clinton having sex with an intern.

I don't think he should be judged more harshly but should receive the same sentence as any sex offender that exposes himself in public.

The difference between Clinton and this judge is that Clinton didn't commit an illegal act. Perhaps an unethical one but not an illegal one.

In 3 states it is, but the fine in Arkansas is only $20-$100 according to this website http://www.weirdsexlaws.com/byType.php?ID=11
Bizarre!

Not to mention the fact that Clinton had his fling in private -- NOT in a public setting!

Yea, cheating on your wife and doing something obscene in a courtroom when you're supposed to be the judge are different. The court reporter could see him doing it. I hope he's charged with contempt of court and stripped of his title, and public indecency.

Adultery might be illegal but nobody's been charged with it for years and years.

Except for perjury.

So, any comments about the judge?




According to the story he was exposed 15 times at least, and also was using the device during testimony by a murdered toddler's family. Can you imagine if you were in the courtroom! I can't even fathom how he possibly thought it was okay.

I don't even know what a penis pump is. I don't think I want to know.

What a pervert. I hope they stick it to him. (No pun intended)

Just think of what it would take for you to masterbate as you were sitting on the bench in front of a room full of people (including police officers). Obviously, this is one sick, sick man.

My thoughts exactly And during a murdered toddler's trial - as if the poor family of the baby didn't have enough bad memories

I think he should be held to a higher standard.

The judge should be held to a higher standard because he KNOWS the law!! He knew what he did was wrong. If he wanted to do this in the privacy of his chambers, he can do so, but in the courtroom during a trial is outrageous!!
