ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

The Judicial Tenure Commission trial for Judge Wade McCree is expected to continue Tuesday afternoon in a Washtenaw County courtroom.  Watch it live on myFOXdetroit.com.

The misconduct hearing will help determine whether he keeps his job.

On the stand Tuesday the judge's doctor says McCree suffers from a mental condition that led to what he said was abnormal, overly confident public statements.

Dr. David Jacobi said he diagnosed McCree last year with a condition called, "hypomania." The diagnosis came after the judge sent a shirtless picture of himself to a courthouse employee and told FOX 2 reporter Charlie LeDuff, "There's no shame in my game."

Last week Wade McCree testified that he regretted the "poor judgment" he exercised by getting involved with Geniene La'Shay Mott, 30. But he explained that he had found her too hard to resist.
 
Mott "surprised me and thrilled me. ... I lusted after that woman. I'm in my middle 50s and she's a double dozen years my junior," McCree, 56, said.

The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission says he acted irresponsibly when he carried on an affair with Mott while presiding over a case against the father of her child. McCree testified he should have transferred the case immediately.


McCree is expected to get back on the stand on Tuesday and Fox 2's cameras will continue to roll to record what he says.
