Awkward moments abound in penis pump trial

“BRISTOW, Okla. – Serving on the jury in an indecent-exposure trial unfolding in this conservative Oklahoma town has been a giggle-inducing experience.

Former Judge Donald D. Thompson, a veteran of 23 years on the bench, is on trial on charges he used a penis pump on himself in the courtroom while sitting in judgment of others.

Over the past few days, the jurors have watched a defense attorney and a prosecutor pantomime masturbation. A doctor has lectured on the lengths the defendant was willing to go to enhance his sexual performance.

The white-handled sexual device sits before the jury box for hours at a time. Occasionally an attorney picks it up and squeezes the handle, demonstrating the “sh-sh” sound of air rushing through the contraption’s plastic tubing.

The jurors sometimes exchange awkward looks and break into nervous laughter when the testimony takes a lurid turn.

Thompson, 59, is charged with four counts of indecent exposure, each punishable by up to 10 years in prison. If convicted, he would also have to register as a sex offender, and his $7,489.91-a-month pension would be in jeopardy.

Thompson’s former court reporter, Lisa Foster, wiped away tears as she described tracing an unfamiliar “sh-sh” in the courtroom to her boss. She testified that between 2001 and 2003 she saw Thompson expose himself at least 15 times.

“I was really shocked and I was kind of scared because it was so bizarre,” said Foster.

She testified that during a trial in 2002, she heard the pump during the emotional testimony of a murdered toddler’s grandfather.

The grandfather “was getting real teary-eyed, and the judge was up there pumping on that pump,” she said. “It was sickening.”

The allegations came to light after a police officer who was in Thompson’s court heard pumping sounds and took photos of the device during a break in the proceedings.”

Ok, here is a question. How involved do you have to be for you not to notice that there is a cop taking pictures of you and your pump.

    Jack – a man of few words (or not words at all)…NO WAY.

    I don’t quite know what to say.

    OK…this may sound a little naive, but why would he need to use the pump in court? I mean what would he get out of it – would he jack off (sorry Jack) after getting him hard.

    Clueless here.

    Oh My! This trial has been the ‘talk’ around central and northern Oklahoma. I cannot believe this idiot Judge! and he plead NOT guilty….what is he thinking? If he wanted to use the ‘penis pump’ he could have used it at HOME……..

    The KEY witness is still missing:
    from KTUL channel 8

    “Angela McClanahan, 37, was expected to testify about a misdemeanor charge of misusing state property filed against Thompson, who also is facing four felony counts of indecent exposure. When McClanahan failed to appear at a court hearing, the misdemeanor charge was severed from the case and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

    Officers said they almost caught up with her Monday night at a home in Jenks, but said she fled out the back door as they arrived.

    State officials have identified McClanahan as the woman engaged in sex with Thompson in four photos that had been seized from a computer in his court chambers.”
