judge who came under fire for texting nude photos of himself to a female
bailiff is now accused of impregnating a complaining witness and discussing a
punishment for the defendant in the case according to Fox News.com.
Third Circuit Court Judge Wade McCree is accused of carrying an affair with
Geniene La'Shay Mott, a woman who had brought her ex-boyfriend into his court
on felony charges for not paying child support, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.
"I met him as a litigant, a complaining witness in his courtroom, and
he stayed around after the case was over and that's when the second half of
flirting started and we went from there and our relationship picked up,"
Mott told MyFoxDetroit.com
"It went from being a summer fling and just something to do to falling
in love, promises of marriage, me getting pregnant, us buying a house together,
name it," she said.
Alleged text messages between the two shown to MyFoxDetroit.com's Charlie
LeDuff show things went sour when McCree's wife found out about the pregnancy.
An alleged text message sent from McCree's phone to Mott promised that she
would get anything she needed in return for an abortion.
"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!!!" the alleged text message reads.
Another text message exchange allegedly shows the two discussing a
punishment for Mott's ex.
"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!" a text from McCree allegedly said.
"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???" Mott allegedly sent back.
McCree refused to answer questions asked by Charlie LeDuff, and referred all
matters to the prosecutor's office.
No criminal action will be taken against Mott, the Wayne County
prosecutor's office tells Fox 2. The entire matter is being referred to the
Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission.
