Formal sentencing set for former Oklahoma lawmaker

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Formal sentencing is scheduled for a former state Oklahoma lawmaker who has been convicted of bribery.

Sentencing is scheduled in Oklahoma County District Court Friday for Republican former Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore.

A jury in October found Terrill guilty of offering a bribe for withdrawal of candidacy, a felony. Jurors recommended he serve a one-year prison sentence and pay a $5,000 fine.

Prosecutors alleged Terrill arranged to put Democratic former state Sen. Debbe Leftwich in an $80,000-a-year job at the Medical Examiner’s Office if she would not seek re-election in 2010 so a Republican colleague of Terrill’s could seek her open seat.

Earlier this month, Leftwich was convicted for her role in the bribery scheme. She received a one-year suspended sentence that will keep her from serving jail time.
