Prosecutor Files 5 New Counts Against Judge (Jul 27, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma County prosecutors have filed five additional felony counts against a district judge who is accused of perjury and fraud.

District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure was charged in January with 30 counts of making a fraudulent claim against the state and two counts of perjury. Her husband, Karlos LeSure, also has been charged in the case.

District Attorney David Prater on Tuesday filed two counts of conspiracy, two counts of obtaining assistance by false representation and one count of falsifying records against Bass-LeSure.

The LeSures are accused of taking state payments for foster children they adopted who don't live with them. Both have denied any wrongdoing.

Bass-LeSure's attorney, Richard Anderson, told The Oklahoman the new charges are "a political witch hunt" and that Bass-LeSure hasn't committed a crime.
