Ala. Judge Cleared of Sex Abuse in Inmate Spanking
A former Alabama judge was cleared Monday of charges that he spanked and sexually abused male inmates. Prosecutors portrayed former Mobile County Circuit Judge Herman Thomas as a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" figure who carefully crafted an image as a mentor to troubled youth, while secretly paddling and sexually abusing young inmates for pleasure. Defense attorney Robert "Cowboy Bob" Clark described Thomas as the victim of lying felons. "He ain't no pervert," Clark told the jury in closing arguments.
