Randy Terrill convicted of bribery
An Oklahoma County jury has convicted former state representative Randy Terrill of bribery.
The panel recommended Terrill spend 1-year in prison and pay a $5,000 fine. Judge Cindy Truong will formally sentence Terrill December 5.
Terrill's attorney is already planning an appeal. A meeting is set for Wednesday to file the motion. Judge Truong will decide then whether Terrill will be incarcerated during the appeal process.
Terrill testified Tuesday in front of a jury and closing arguments were made.
His trial wrapped up in the second week. Terrill told FOX 25 earlier in the trial he was looking forward to taking the stand and that he is glad the truth is coming out.
Prosecutors say Terrill offered former State Senator Debbie Leftwich a high paying job, if she did not run for reelection. However, the two former lawmakers have maintained their innocence.
Leftwich will stand trial in December. If convicted, she could face up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
