OKLAHOMA CITY - A convicted former Oklahoma judge is not eligible for his retirement pension, according to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
The state's highest court ruled Tuesday that Donald Thompson, former Creek County District Judge, is not eligible to receive retirement benefits from his more than two decades on the bench after he was convicted of exposing himself by using a sexual device while presiding over trials.
The court also ruled that Thompson's wife, Paula Thompson, has no vested interest in the benefits because they were forfeited.
Thompson served around 20 months in prison after being convicted of four counts of indecent exposure.
Since then, he's had numerous run-ins with the law, including several arrests for drunk driving and stalking.
