UPDATE: Jury Selected in Okla. Ex-senator's Trial (Feb 13, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A 12-member jury has been seated in the federal bribery and conspiracy trial of the former leader of the Oklahoma State Senate who is accused of illegally accepting $400,000 in payments from three companies that wanted his influence on legislation.

The panel of 11 women and one man was picked Monday in the case of former state Sen. Mike Morgan of Stillwater. Opening statements in the case are set for Tuesday in U.S. District Judge Robin Cauthron's courtroom.

Federal prosecutors allege Morgan conspired with lobbyist William Skeith and attorney N. Martin Stringer to steer bills on behalf of two of the companies from 2004 until 2008. Skeith and Stringer face charges of conspiracy, extortion and mail fraud.

Morgan's attorney says his client provided legal services to the companies.
