For the second time this year, a former Oklahoma Judge faces indictment by a grand jury. You might remember his name; Craig Key made headlines as the judge who presided over the Kelsey Briggs case.

It was a custody case involving allegations of abuse. Of course, that little girl later died after being beaten to death.

Earlier this year, Key was indicted in a separate case involving embezzlement and horse theft.

Now he’s facing a new indictment; this time on allegations of forgery and embezzlement.

In this case he’s accused of forging a client’s name on a $200,000 check and depositing it into an account he controlled. That account later ended up empty and overdrawn.

If convicted on both counts, Key could face up to 12 years in prison.
