Former Oklahoma District Judge Donald Thompson, 61, has been disbarred by the Oklahoma Supreme Court. Thompson was convicted in June 2006 of using a “penis pump” in court under his robes and served prison time on that conviction.
Thompson ultimately served 20 months of a four-year term and has had to register as a sex offender.
This was by no means a certain result. Lawyers with felony convictions have been allowed to return to practice in some circumstances.
