    I used to drive by Mobile Metro Jail at least once a week.


    Does it not make since that angry inmates could scheme to make several allegations against the guy? Guilty or not, what says everyone?

    If not handled properly, it could be that Latin Phrase, "careerus interruptus".

    Maybe he was just trying to introduce the inmates to what prison life would be like.

    He needs to team up with that idiot professor up in New England and they can do a road show about what it feels like to be victimized by the man.

    State Bar: Thomas Is A “Sexual Predator”

    A former judge accused of paddling inmates will not get his law license back any time soon.

    A three person panel of the Alabama State Bar's Disciplinary Commission upheld a previous decision to suspend Herman Thomas' license, despite Thomas denying under oath all of the allegations in a 57 count indictment.

    "I'm not guilty," said Thomas, in his first interview since his arrest earlier this month. "There is no doubt that people assisted these inmates in telling these lies on me."

    During the two hour hearing, Thomas testified about the nature of his relationship with each of the nine inmates named in the indictment. Thomas acknowledged going to Mobile Metro Jail to pick up two of the inmates on separate occasions, but he said he gave one of the inmates a ride home and the other he took to his court chambers to mentor.

    In addition to paddling inmates, Thomas is also accused of forcing them to perform sexual acts in exchange for leniency in the courtroom. Tony McLain, General Counsel for the Alabama State Bar, introduced into evidence pictures of the room where the sexual abuse allegedly happened and forensic DNA evidence allegedly found in the room.

    "When you have the mounting amount of information and the number of people coming forward, especially with someone in a high place such as a judge, wanting to provide information which obviously is embarrassing to them individually and the responsibility they have to back it up, leads us to the conclusion he is a dangerous individual," said McLain, who also agreed with the testimony of Jeremy McIntrye, Asst. General Counsel, who called Thomas a "sexual predator."

    Thomas' wife sat behind him during the hearing, and afterwards she clung to his arm as he talked to News Five about his desire to continue working in the community.

    Turns out these charges are nothing new

    The oldest incident in the charges dates to 1999, his first year as a circuit judge. The first public claim against Thomas surfaced in lawsuits filed by an inmate in 2001 in Mobile circuit court and in federal court that claimed the judge offered to help him with his case in return for sex. Both lawsuits were dismissed, and Thomas' reputation remained unblemished.

    In April, he described the situation as a "a high-tech lynching" and said it was politically motivated.
    "They don't like uppity black folks, and that's what they consider Herman."
    I'm going to try my best to withhold judgement until he is convicted but when his only defense is, "because I'm black" it doesn't look so good...


    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a civil rights organisation, has said that Mr Thomas is being prosecuted because of his race.
    ESPECIALLY when these guys are supposed to be your "support".



    Now what happened to my Race Card thread...

    If the part about defendants and/or prisoners being brought into judge's chambers for 'private meetings' is true (and pretty easy to confirm), this guy is cooked. That would be unheard of.

    Using the race card is pretty lame. If you're not guilty of such crimes, fight it on the merits or lack thereof. Don't resort to that crap.
