Judge who was reprimanded for texting shirtless picture to a bailiff is now in more trouble

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Wade McCree who was reprimanded for sending shirtless pictures to a court bailiff is in more trouble.

Geniene LaShay Mott says on her Facebook page that she had a relationship with Judge McCree. The relationship happened while Mott was before McCree on a case in which the judge sent her ex-boyfriend to jail for back child support.

The ex-boyfriend confirmed to 7 Action News that he saw romantic text messages between Mott and Decree while his case was being heard.

Legal experts say it is a clear conflict of interest for a judge to have a relationship with someone who has a case before them. Just before word of this relationship leaked out, in a strange twist, McCree filed a stalking complaint with the Wayne County Prosecutor's office against Mott. But on Friday, the prosecutor's office said that no criminal action would be taken against Mott and referred the whole matter to the judicial tenure commission.

7 Action News was unable to reach Mott for comment and McCree did not return our phone message and was not in court on Friday.
