A Whole New Meaning To “Getting Screwed By The Judge.”

Mott-McCree-ROHAt one point in time, Wade McCree (seen on the right) was a judge in Michigan.

McCree is not one who displayed the highest ethical standards for a judge.

For example, the Michigan Supreme Court censured McCree for sending nude pictures of himself to one of his female bailiffs.

But while investigators were looking into that incident, another incident with McCree came to light.

Enter “the other woman.”

Geniene La’Shay Mott (seen on the left) came to McCree’s courtroom as a complainant in a case where she was asserting her ex, Robert King, was delinquent on his child support payments for a child he and Mott parented.

Mott and McCree hit it off in the courtroom and after that, they just started to hit it. (If’fn ya know what we mean.)

Not only was McCree being intimate with a person involved in a case over which he was presiding and should have recused himself, but he and Mott talked about the penalty King should receive.

MyFoxDetroit has messages between the two that show a disturbing exchange:

McCree: My Judicial Tenure Commission has me nervous, as you might expect. I have to be real careful until this matter is put to rest… you are the complaining witness on a case that is before me. Naturally if it got out that we were seeing each other before your B.D.’s (baby daddy) case closed, everybody could be in deep (expletive). Why you want to spend time with a man like me remains a mystery, but if you’ll have me… then as Bill Withers said, “use me up!” SMOOCHES.

……

McCree: OK, The math will be based on his failures since being placed on probation, but if U’r right, the threat of jail will loosen his purse strings!

Mott: OK, SO LET’S GO WITH WHAT YOU PROPOSED… GO 2 JAIL (150 DAYS), RELEASE UPON PAYMENT OF $1,500. OR, GET A TETHER & BRING BACK W/N 30 DAYS $2500 OR SERVE 9 MONTHS! BONUS: PAY W/N 30 DAYS, REMOVE TETHER. NOW BACK 2 US… WHAT ARE WE DOIN AFTER COURT THURSDAY???

King was thrown into prison for his actions.

How do we know all about this behind the scene drama?

Like most affairs, the one between Mott and McCree ended badly.

Mott says Judge McCree promised to marry her. She even went with him to file the divorce papers. Then she got pregnant. And then she went to the OB/GYN.

Message from Mott: HAVE YOU BEEN SLEEPING W/ANYONE ELSE DURING OUR RELATIONSHIP???… EVEN ORAL SEX? I’M ASKING NOW CAUSE THEY R GONNA RUN THE TEST 2 KNOW IF THE BABY @ RISK & I RATHER HEAR IT FROM U IF I DO.

McCree: U HAVE BEEN MY ONLY PARTNER SINCE WE’VE ENCOUNTERED EACH OTHER.

So it was supposed to be happily ever after until she says McCree got cold feet. According to the text sent from McCree’s phone, his wife found out about the baby and wouldn’t grant him the divorce unless Mott aborted it.

McCree: YEAH LET’S TALK!!! I WANT (AND SO DOES LAVERNE) THIS TERMINATION. U’LL GET WHATEVER U WANT 4 IT! I’VE BEEN CLEAR ON IT FROM THE GET GO!!! WHATEVER U WANT, YOU SHALL HAVE!!!

Mott: O NO… U ACT LIKE I’M HOLDING THIS OVER U… YOU ASKED ME 2 GET THE ABORTION 2 HELP YOU IN YOUR DIVORCE CASE.

McCree eventually filed a complaint against Mott for stalking and harassing him. McCree’s complaint was eventually dismissed but by then, the cat was out of the judicial bag.

[McCree] lost his judgeship and was subsequently suspended without pay for 6 years — a remedy the Michigan Supreme Court imposed because they honestly thought McCree could easily win reelection despite the scandal.

While McCree was losing his job, and Mott was testifying at hearings that resulted in McCree losing his job, Mott’s ex Robert King was sitting in jail.

King sued McCree in civil court as there are no criminal remedies for him. One would think that such egregious actions such as a judge deciding the fate of a man whose ex was spending lots of time in the judges chambers gettin’ it on with the judge and father a child by the woman would be something the courts should look at.

One would be wrong.

The Sixth Circuit Court said that McCree, like all judges, has complete and absolute immunity when it comes to civil liability.

As a general practice, we can see why judges do deserve immunity. Judges often decide contentious and emotional issues. Yet the basis of the American legal system is that people walk into the courtroom as equals. Both parties have to try and prove their case. In civil cases, that level of proof is that one side only has to prove their case by the “preponderance of the evidence.” In criminal cases, the standard is higher – a “reasonable doubt.”

When Mott’s ex came into the McCree’s court, he was not an equal. McCree was not a “fair and impartial judge” in the case. What sane person thinks that McCree would rule against the woman with whom he was having sex with in his chambers?

Here is what [Mott] says they did after court.

“The day of, we then go to his chambers, as usual… but in chambers all of the time,” she said.

Sex, I asked.

“Yes. We have sex in his chambers very often.”

On his desk, I further questioned.

“On his desk, in the chair, the couch, you name it.”

With McCree being removed from the bench, why shouldn’t he face civil liability? He conspired with another person to throw King in jail. If a judge’s conduct is so extreme and contrary to the law where he is removed from the bench, why shouldn’t he face civil penalties from the people he wronged? If a judge cannot be held liable for gross misconduct, why should anyone else ever be held for it? Animal-Farm

Joel Sklar, the attorney for King, says he’s taking the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“There should be no immunity for what happened here,” he tells the Freep.

“This conduct is absurd,” Sklar said. “It’s so beyond description. A judge uses his chambers to have sex with a litigant? … If this isn’t too far, what is too far?”

Judges should not have special protection when the step outside of the law and judicial ethics. Yet courts say they have that protection.

We keep getting reminded that “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
