Ex-Lawmaker In Okla. Sentenced To 1 Year In Prison

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma judge has sentenced a former state lawmaker to a one-year prison sentence and a $5,000 fine following his conviction on a felony bribery charge.

District Judge Cindy Truong handed down the sentence Friday to Republican former Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore.

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

Terrill says he will appeal his conviction.

Truong has allowed Terrill to remain free on a $10,000 appeal bond during the appellate process.

Prosecutors say Terrill arranged to put a Democratic former state senator 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.
