That's Not My Bag, Baby

From the AP:
Jurors Will See Judge's Alleged Sex Toy

Jurors hearing the case against a former judge accused of exposing himself in his Creek County courtroom will be allowed to see the sex toy at the center of the state's allegations, a judge ruled Tuesday in rejecting a defense motion.

They also can hear testimony that a second "penis pump" was seen under former District Judge Donald Thompson's bench, among other evidence Thompson's attorneys sought to have barred from next week's scheduled trial.

Thompson, 58, who spent more than 20 years on the bench before stepping down more than a year ago, faces three counts of indecent exposure.

Prosecutors allege he masturbated with a penis pump under his robe while presiding over two murder trials and a civil trial in 2003. Thompson denies the allegations and said the penis pump seized in the case was a gag gift from a friend.

Who among us hasn't masturbated using one of the two penis pumps that we own while presiding over a murder trial? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Also, when reading the story, it doesn't sound like there was any actual exposure. Does there need to be for a charge of indecent exposure?

I also realized from my three of my last four posts that I need to find new reading material.
