The Mobile Press-Register covered the opening arguments of Mobile County chief assistant district attorney Nicki Patterson:
Thomas would pick men without fathers in their lives and who were in need of help, Patterson said, sometimes checking them out of jail.
Using the judges' secure elevator, he brought the men to an eighth-floor office with a glass panel that had been covered with paper, she said.
Inside, she said, Thomas told the young men to strip down and be paddled, or be sent back to jail. During the spankings, some of the men turned around to see Thomas masturbating or having an "obvious erection in his pants," Patterson said.
Patterson said Thomas also ordered men to masturbate or engage in oral sex with him.Prosecution also accused Thomas of pulling certain inmates or defendants of that specified demographic from other judges' docket to handle and rule on the case himself. They also called their first witness Circuit Judge Charles Gaddick, who was asked directly by Assistant District Attorney Martha Tierney if he would ever or had dinner with a defendant and Gaddick replied, "I've never been to dinner with a defendant, period."
According to the Thomas's lawyer, Jeff Deen, Thomas was the founder of the Mobile chapter of the 100 Black Men, and a "pillar of the community". Deen also countered that the other judges asked Thomas personally to take these cases for a variety of reasons.
This all went down while his wife was sitting there listening and watching the opening arguments by prosecution.
After reading that about the details of that you can tell dude is a freaky ass clown and just nasty as hell. Masturbating, paddling oral sex, and allegedly anal sex as well. WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW! You can't make this type of stuff up. I'm going to stay on top of this for sure because this is only going to get more scandalous as it goes. This along with Birmingham mayor's Larry Langford's trial will make this week VERY INTERESTING.
