SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) - A former Creek County judge who was
convicted of indecent exposure for using a sexual device while
presiding over trials will be a free man soon.

According to the Tulsa World, Department of Corrections records
show Donald Thompson's release from his prison term is tentatively
set for May 1st, although he could be out as early as Wednesday.

Thompson will have to register as a sex offender with the
Sapulpa Police Department and the Corrections Department within 72
hours of his release.

A jury convicted Thompson in June 2006 of four indecent-exposure
charges. Prosecutors accused him of exposing himself by using a
penis pump during four trials between 2001 and 2003. He denied
wrongdoing.

Thompson was formally sentenced to serve four one-year prison
terms consecutively. If Thompson is released May 1st, he will have served slightly more than 20 months behind bars. His early release would be the result of good-behavior credits normally given by the DOC.

    Is that why they call it the penal system?

    You all see what I'm talking about. Why chastize the man? He's probably had enough critisism! In my opinion...laughter is the better way to go!!! This is really a very humorous story, so as long as we can post, we should!!! Ooops...I said "long"

    The judge always told me that he got "pumped up" before every trial. He wanted to be known as a "hard" judge.

    Knowledge - OK, let's just say for arguments sake all of this is revenge for loosing their cases. That doesn't explain how they knew this judge had a "pump". As I understand men - this isn't something men make public knowledge. I do feel sorry for the family - I cannot imagine how embarrassed and ashamed they are. As I understood the first newscast on this months ago - the people didn't "see" anything, they heard the noise of the "pump". I believe in Karma, too.

    There is a British slang term (derogatory and sexually suggestive) that I wish I could use here, but it would be censored, so to avoid that I won't use it here. But if I could, it would best describe this person, and what he did to the justice system in Creek County. Oh BTW HERE, I think the 400 lb. gorilla was commenting on your use of all caps and lack of punctuation- your sentences all run together, and it makes it kinda hard to tell what you're saying. And typing in all-caps is considered shouting. I do agree with you- this judge is wierd (the first letter of which is also the first letter of the word I can't use here).

    To:"Here" in "Gone". There's a little bitty key on the lower right side of your keyboard. It looks like this-> . It's called a "period". It's used at the end of every sentence. And...there's another key at the very left side of your keyboard (just above the "Ctrl" key). It's called the "Shift" key, and it's used to capitalize the very first character of every sentence! I can't make much sense of your post.
