You may recall Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree found our earlier discussion of his sending court personnel revealing pictures of himself. He was sanctioned for that little episode. McCree is back before a judicial ethics panel for allegedly making a false report of a felony, misrepresentations to the commission and engaging in improper bench conduct and demeanor. The latter charges involve having sex with a witness in his chambers, a relationship that he insisted did not affect his judgment in any way in the child-support case. He also allegedly impregnating Geniene La’Shay Mott (left with McCree). Despite his continual bizarre and improper conduct, McCree has remained on the bench in an indictment of the entire political and judicial system in Wayne County in Michigan.
McCree calls his decision to have sex in his chambers on repeated occasions an “unfortunate decision” — though that use of singular in this line seems a bit out of place. He admits that he should have recused himself but that his relationship with Mott did not “influence his judicial conduct or judgment” and says it “did not impact any of [his] decisions.”
McCree reportedly got Mott’s personal phone number from a case file and made a lunch date. He proceeded to repeatedly discuss the merits of Mott’s child-support case. The text messages with Mott are truly bizarre. In one text, McCree reportedly wrote “C’mon, U’r talking about the ‘docket from hell,’ filled w/tatted up, overweight, half-ass English speaking, gap tooth skank hoes … and then you walk in.” Latter McCree insisted that he was just trying to “flatter” Mott and the message “was not intended to demean any person who had appeared in his courtroom.” I cannot imagine anyone feeling demeaned by a judge calling them “tatted up, overweight, half-ass English speaking, gap tooth skank hoes.” In McCree’s world, that appears to be terms of endearment.
McCree’s name may seem familiar for some lawyers. His father, Wade H. McCree Jr., was solicitor general to Jimmy Carter and the first African-American judge to be appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He, however, tended to keep his robes on.
McCree is a graduate from the University of Michigan (B.A.) and Stanford Law School (J.D.).
By the way, McCree is reportedly an expert on sexual misconduct cases.

When can we get a real discussion on the need for the removal of absolute immunity from our prosecutorial and judicial systems?
In Feb. I sat in a courtroom and listened to a judge under criminal scrutiny for his miscreant ways as a prosecutor repeatedly bring up and even describe deviant sexual acts in his defense of himself. This subject matter has absolutely NO relevance to his case. Then I learned that falling into the description of wildly prurient sexual acts was a common act for this man.
As the civilized society that we are
WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT WHEN WE COMBINE ABSOLUTE POWER WITH ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY, THAT TANTALIZING COMBINATION IS GOING TO ATTRACT DEVIANTS.
Today, absolute immunity serves no purpose.
My dad suggested another t-shirt: “Have Penis, Will Adjudicate”.
This guy is dirty and needs to spend some alone time behind bars.
Check him for Toxoplasmosis (toxoplasma gondii) …
“Forget about it Jake, it’s Detroit.”
He IS a sexual misconduct case. With such poor judgement for his own behaviour he shouldn’t be passing judgement on others.
In the end, nothing will be done to dethrone this judge. This is all a smoke and mirrors showtrial to give the appearance sanctions are being taken when in fact I would opin the powers to be don’t have the intention to remove him. Slap on the wrist at best to give the false impression they are doing something corrective.
How about in an indictment on the whole political and judicial system, period.
