Ex-Okla. Senator Won't Face Charges (Mar 12, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal prosecutor says he will not refile charges against former Oklahoma Senate leader Mike Morgan after a jury deadlocked on a verdict last week.

U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats released a court filing Monday to The Associated Press that asks for the dismissal of the 28 unresolved charges.

Neither Coats nor defense attorney David Ogle immediately returned phone calls seeking comment.

A federal jury convicted Morgan on one count of bribery for attempting to influence a bill that would ease regulations on the state's nursing home industry.

The filing by prosecutors said that even a conviction on the additional charges likely would not affect the possible sentence for Morgan.

Morgan faces up to 10 years in prison for the bribery conviction. His attorney has said the conviction will be appealed.
