DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit judge has agreed to a reprimand for sending a shirtless photo of himself to a courthouse employee and telling a reporter, "No shame in my game."

Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree agreed to the punishment in an order released Wednesday by the Michigan Supreme Court. The court says it's accepting the recommendation of a watchdog agency and ordering a public censure.

The justices agreed with the Judicial Tenure Commission that McCree "brought shame ... to the judiciary" with his April comments to WJBK-TV reporter Charlie LeDuff.

McCree sent a cellphone photo of himself to a female sheriff's officer. It shows a very fit judge from the waist up. The officer kept it to motivate her to improve her workouts, but her husband provided a copy to LeDuff.
