(Newser) – An Oklahoma judge who used a sexual device under his robe while presiding over jury trials has been stripped of his pension. Donald Thompson—who served 20 months in prison for indecent exposure after being caught using a penis pump—violated his oath of office and has no right to collect his $7,789 judicial pension, the Oklahoma Supreme Court decided. Thompson's lawyers argued that he should only lose benefits from his last term in office, the Oklahoman reports.

"Court reporters observed the felonious exposure of Mr. Thompson's private parts, and testified to the fact during the criminal trial. That trial resulted in conviction of felonies. Those felonies violated Mr. Thompson's oath of office," the court wrote. Thompson, who served as a judge for 22 years, was arrested after a court reporter told police that she had seen him using the device almost daily during the murder trial of a man accused of shaking a toddler to death. Investigators found semen on the carpet, his robes, and the chair behind the bench. (Click to read another very odd story involving a judge...)

Thompson still has a felony DUI charge pending.   (Handout)
