OKLAHOMA CITY —
Defense attorneys have said Terrill did not have the authority to promise Leftwich a job, and that Leftwich wasn’t technically a candidate for re-election because she never filed the required paperwork with the state Election Board. Terrill left the Legislature last year.
Defense attorneys have also said the actions of Terrill and Leftwich were constitutionally protected because they were acting in their official capacity as legislators.
Defense attorneys are scheduled to make their closing arguments in the case Tuesday afternoon, and then Terrill’s jury is expected to return a verdict in the case.
Terrill faces up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
