Hearing Delayed for Judge Charged With fraud (Jul 20, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A preliminary hearing for an Oklahoma judge charged with fraud and perjury has been postponed while the judge appeals another judge's order in the case.

The hearing was to begin on Friday for Oklahoma County District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure and her husband, Karlos LeSure. But an online court entry posted Tuesday indicates Garfield County District Judge Paul Woodward, who is presiding over the case, postponed the hearing.

No new date was set.

Bass-LeSure and her husband are charged with making a fraudulent claim against the state and perjury for allegedly taking payments for foster children they adopted who do not live with them. Both deny wrongdoing.

In May, Woodward denied Bass-LeSure's motion to remove District Attorney David Prater from the case. She has appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeals.
