Oklahoma judge resigns amid sexual misconduct allegations

The Associated Press - March 27, 2021 11:40 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma County judge is resigning after three female attorneys came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against him. Jari Askins, the chief administrative officer of the state’s court system, said on Friday that Oklahoma County Judge Timothy Henderson notified her of his resignation on Friday.

Henderson has not been charged, but Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater confirmed that he launched an investigation last week after three female attorneys came forward with “serious sexual assault allegations against the judge.”

A telephone message left on Friday at Henderson’s office was not immediately returned.
