Detroit judge on leave after allegedly pressuring mistress to have an abortion
DETROIT, December 11, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Detroit judge has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into his relationship with a woman who says he pressured her to abort his child.
Geniene La’Shay Mott met Judge Wade McCree Jr. inside the Third Circuit Court of Wayne County when she sued her previous boyfriend for child support. She stayed after the hearing one day, and she claims the two began a passionate affair that – for her, at least – turned into love.
“We have sex in his chambers very often,” she told the local Fox station. “On his desk, in the chair, the couch, you name it.”
The affair produced a new life – one McCree decided had to be ended before he would ask his wife, Laverne, for a divorce.
Mott showed numerous text messages the two exchanged during their affair, some related to the decision to abort:
McCree: 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!!!
Mott: O NO… U ACT LIKE I’M HOLDING THIS OVER U… YOU ASKED ME 2 GET THE ABORTION 2 HELP YOU IN YOUR DIVORCE CASE.
Ultimately, McCree stayed with his wife, and Mott chose to keep their baby.
“I never wanted to have the abortion in the first place,” she said.
McCree accused Mott of stalking and extortion, but the Wayne County prosecutor’s office has said it will not press charges.
Instead, McCree has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the state’s Judicial Tenure Commission.

McCree had a previous brush with indecent behavior. The Michigan State Supreme Court censured him in October after he sent a partially naked picture of himself to a female bailiff in April. She said the image inspired her to stick to her diet, but her husband, who reported the sexting, said it ruined their marriage.
The judge’s father, Wade McCree Sr., served as Solicitor General under President Jimmy Carter.
