Detroit’s 3rd Circuit Judge Wade McCree,who made news in January of this year for sending partially nude texts to a married court bailiff, is now accused of impregnating a witness in a case he was trying concerning her boyfriend, reports MyFoxDetroit.com.
Geniene La’Shay Mott entered Judge McCree’s courtroom to bring felony charges against her ex-boyfriend for failure to pay child support. What began as a flirtatious exchange with the judge, soon turned into a lot more.
“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,” said Mott.
“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.
My Fox Detroit reports:
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.
As previously reported by NewsOne, McCree, who ironically specializes in trying sexual misconduct cases, was busted for texting a nearly nude photo (from the waist up, shirtless) of himself to a married court bailiff on his payroll.
When confronted by Fox 2 News, McCree had a surprising reaction — he admits, quite proudly, to not only taking the picture, but to having sent it to various women.

No criminal action will be taken against Mott, but the jury is still out on McCree. The matter is being referred to the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission.
Somebody needs to put a leash on this hound and fast. Manipulating his place of trust and power behind the bench to pick up women is about as low — and lame — as he can go.
