Thomas Carl Dodds Jr.

Thomas Dodds, 41 of Muskogee was scheduled for a hearing today on his child rape and child pornography cases in front of Judge Mike Norman.

Norman said Dodds and his father had said things about him in public and online.

“I can’t be fair in this case, so I’m going to recuse myself.”

The case then went to Judge Norman Thygeson, who also recused himself after Dodds complained that there was a conflict there stemming from past social interactions between them. Though Thygeson said he didn’t remember the interaction, he passed the case to Judge Thomas Alford.

Alford was the judge on a case of Dodds’ from years ago that sent Dodds to prison. Asked if he had a problem with Alford being judge, Dodds said he did, so Alford recused himself, too.

He will now approach two other district judges, Shepherd and Payton, both of whom Dodds says he has no objection to.

If either of those judges can hear the case, authorities hope to get it on the June jury docket.
