Former Oklahoma Judge Donald Thompson, accused of exposing himself by using a sexual device during trials, won a delay in his case Friday, when Judge Gary Maxey recused himself after Thompson's lawyers raised questions about a conversation Maxey once had with a potential witness. A prosecutor expressed frustration at the delays, saying there's probably not a judge in the state who hasn't had casual conversations about the case given the media coverage and explicit nature of the allegations.
