The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Judge Donald Thompson, last seen exercising the wrong judicial prerogative in his Sapulpa courtroom, will retire at the end of this month rather than face ouster charges.

Thompson's attorney had this to say:

He actually considered not retiring so he could see this through. But the allegations have been so disruptive, he wanted this to go away.

The allegations, filed by Attorney General Drew Edmondson this summer, included a variety of acts The Oklahoman describes as "genital-related."

Thompson's trial, scheduled for 13 September, will presumably be called off.

Some might argue that he is being jerked off the bench.
