Former Creek County Judge Fights Pension Ruling

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Former Judge Donald Thompson is due before an Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System hearing officer Tuesday in his appeal of the revocation of his state pension. Thompson is challenging the retirement systems decision to withhold his $93,000 a year pension because of his conviction on felony charges of indecent exposure.

Officials with the retirement system say Thompson's benefits were forfeited because the conviction violated his oath of office.

Thompson was accused of using a device called a "penis pump" while presiding over trials in Creek County 2002 and 2003. He retired in 2004 and was convicted on four counts of indecent exposure last June.

He's now serving a four year prison sentence.
