Gdzie się kończy normalne, a zaczyna nienormalne?
In June 2006, Thompson made his way back into a courtroom after having resigned two years prior — this time as a criminal defendant. During his trial, which lasted almost three weeks, the court heard the lurid details of exactly what had been going on underneath Thompson’s robes and why the former judge became a punch line.“The grandfather was getting real teary-eyed, and the judge was up there pumping on that pump. It was sickening.” — Lisa Foster
Although Thompson did not admit to the curious conduct he was accused of, he did concede when he testified that there was indeed a penis pump in his courtroom. “It wasn’t something I was hiding,” he said, claiming that the sex toy was given to him as a 50th birthday gag gift from a close friend that he would go fishing with. And while he did claim he squeezed the pump while sitting on the bench, Thompson said he never used the device to actually masturbate — though he recognized that having it at work was a bad idea. “In 20–20 hindsight, I should have thrown it away,” he said.“In 20–20 hindsight, I should have thrown it away.” — Donald D. Thompson
In 2009, Thompson was convicted of actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence. In July 2011, Thompson was charged with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled dangerous substance after a former felony conviction, and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription after a former felony conviction — all of which were felony charges.“His criminal behavior is not only socially unacceptable, but is an affront to the judicial branch of government and the legal profession.” — Oklahoma Supreme Court
