OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Former Creek County Judge Donald Thompson's name has been stricken from the list of attorneys eligible to practice law in the state.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court removed Thompson's name from the bar membership rolls on September 11th. Records show the high court took the action because Thompson had not paid his bar dues and complied with continuing education mandates.

The bar association's general counsel, Dan Murdock, says the bar could still impose ``further discipline'' for Thompson's criminal conviction. Thompson is serving a four-year prison sentence for indecent exposure while presiding over trials.

Meanwhile, Thompson's filed notice of his intent to appeal his June 29th conviction on four felony indecent exposure counts involving his courtroom behavior.
