Ex-Oklahoma lawmaker convicted of bribery is released from jail, must wear ankle monitor


OKLAHOMA CITY — A former Oklahoma lawmaker who spent several months locked up after being convicted on a bribery charge has returned home but must wear an ankle monitor.

A jury found former Republican state Rep. Randy Terrill guilty in 2013 of offering a then-state Democratic senator an $80,000-a-year state job if she would not run for re-election.

Terrill was sentenced to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine. An appeals court upheld the conviction in May, when Terrill began serving his sentence.

The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/1hzGR4X ) reports that he was first at the Lexington Assessment Reception Center but moved in June to the Greer County jail, which has a contract with the Corrections Department to hold inmates.

A Corrections Department spokeswoman says he was released Monday.
