Okla. prosecutors want ex-lawmakers charged with conspiracy

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma County prosecutors are asking a state appeals court to add a conspiracy charge against two former state lawmakers who face felony bribery charges.

Assistant District Attorney Scott Rowland argued Thursday before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals that there was enough evidence presented during a preliminary hearing on the bribery charges against former Republican state Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore and Democratic state Sen. Debbe Leftwich of Oklahoma City to support the conspiracy count.

Prosecutors are appealing a district court judge's dismissal of the conspiracy charge.

Prosecutors claim Terrill and Leftwich were part of a scheme to set Leftwich up in an $80,000-a-year state job so a Republican colleague of Terrill's could run for her open seat.

Terrill and Leftwich deny the allegations. Terrill's colleague was not charged.
