Supreme Court starts decision process for Judge Wade McCree - Los Angeles Local News | FOX 11 LA KTTV

Supreme Court starts decision process on how much shame is in Wade McCree's game

Posted: Updated:

By: Charlie LeDuff

Wearing a crisp suit and a sour face, Third Circuit Court Judge Wade McCree returned to court Wednesday morning - as a defendant. The embattled barrister sat passively as the Michigan Supreme Court heard final arguments as to whether he should be stripped of his robe and barred from the bench for an additional six years.

All this trouble for having an affair with the woman who had a child support case before him. It doesn't look good.

A year ago Fox 2 reported how McCree laid down more than the law. He bedded Geniene La'Shay Mott in his chambers while secretly keeping her child support case in his courtroom. He discussed her ex-boyfriend's punishment. He got her pregnant and then McCree and his wife tried to trick her into an abortion by faking a divorce.

He admitted as much in earlier proceedings.

"This is at the time when Laverne and I are trying to work Ms. Mott to get the termination, so we could all walk away," McCree said in court.

This on top of the nude selfie he texted out of himself, an embarrassment for which the Supreme Court has already punished him.

Still McCree's lawyer argued that all this wasn't all that bad. The justices didn't seem so sure.

The Supreme Court could make its ruling within two weeks.

Nine intersections get new traffic signals. Sidewalks will be ramped to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Weather permitting, the project will be finished this summer.
