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
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.
