Opening Statements Set In Ex-Legislator's Trial

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorneys are expected to deliver opening statements in the trial of a former Oklahoma legislator accused of bribery.

The trial of Moore Republican Randy Terrill is scheduled to continue on Tuesday at the Oklahoma County courthouse. Terrill is accused of offering to set up a former state senator with a state job in exchange for a promise not to seek re-election in 2010 so that a Republican colleague of Terrill's could seek the senator's open seat.

Terrill has maintained his innocence and contends the charges were politically motivated. Leftwich's trial is set to begin next month.

A seven-man, five-woman jury was selected on Monday to hear the case.

If convicted, Terrill and Leftwich both face up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
