Motion Hearing Set for Terrill, Leftwich in Probe (Mar 17, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma County judge has scheduled a hearing on motions filed in the felony bribery case against state Rep. Randy Terrill and former state Sen. Debbe Leftwich.

Special Judge Stephen Alcorn on Thursday postponed a preliminary hearing conference and set an April 15 hearing.

Terrill, a Republican, is charged with offering Leftwich, a Democrat, an $80,000-a-year state job in exchange for her not running for re-election to clear the way for a Republican to run for the Oklahoma City seat she held. Leftwich is charged with soliciting and/or accepting a bribe.

Both have denied wrongdoing. Defense attorneys have asked that the charges be dismissed. In a separate motion, Terrill has asked the judge to suppress evidence related to his role in the drafting of legislation involved in the case.
