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.
That would leave her seat open for Terrill’s Republican colleague.
Terrill’s sentencing is scheduled for 9 a.m. in Oklahoma City.
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.
