UPDATE 9:20 a.m. – A judge has sentenced former state Rep. Randy Terrill to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Terrill’s attorney is filing an appeal Friday morning.

He is being allowed to stay out of jail while his case is on appeal.

OKLAHOMA CITY – A former state representative convicted of bribery is expected in court for sentencing Friday morning.

A jury has recommended a one-year prison sentence and a $5,000 fine.

He was found guilty of offering a bribe to then-senator Debbe Leftwich.

Prosecutors said Terrill offered to create a state job for Leftwich paying $80,000 per year in exchange she would not seek reelection.

That would leave her seat open for Terrill’s Republican colleague.

Terrill’s sentencing is scheduled for 9 a.m. in Oklahoma City.

A judge convicted Debbe Leftwich of a felony count of bribery after Leftwich waived her right to a jury trial earlier this month.

Despite being found guilty, Leftwich will not have to go to prison.

As part of a deal, the judge sentenced Leftwich to one year of probation.
