OKLAHOMA CITY -

Former Rep. Randy Terrill posted bond and was released at 3:37 p.m. from the OK County Jail on Wednesday.

"I don't expect to come back," Terrill said after bonding out of jail Wednesday.

Less than 24 hours after a jury found him guilty of bribery.

"Don't anger the district attorney," Terrill said that's his advice to other lawmakers at the Capitol.

Wearing an orange jail jumpsuit and handcuffs Terrill confidently walked into his bond hearing on Wednesday. He stayed true to his defense throughout the week-long trial. Terrill claimed it's all a sham and that he's the victim of a personal grudge.

Prosecutors used Terrill's remarks as one reason to ask Judge Cindy Troung to deny Terrill's bond. The state also pointed to testimony that revealed Terrill is a threat and violated the public trust. The state also asked for a gag order, saying Terrill is tainting the jury pool for his co- defendant Sen. Debbie Leftwich's upcoming trial.

A jury found Terrill guilty of bribing former Senator Leftwich with an $80,000-a-year job to withdraw her candidacy in 2010. With it being a non-violent crime, Judge Troung set a $10,000 bond and denied the state's request for a gag order.

Still, Terrill was noticeably more reserved leaving the courtroom and refused to answer questions from media. Only A few hours later, Terrill appeared before cameras again leaving the Oklahoma County Jail.

"You better watch your back, if you make the district attorney mad you may be next," Terrill warned lawmakers.

Prosecutors did not comment following Wednesday's proceeding, but previously said they are pleased the jury recommended Terrill spend one year in jail and pay a $5,000 fine.

Terrill will be out on bond until formal sentencing in December. He must wear an ankle monitor and he is not to leave the state or talk with any of the witnesses in his co-defendant's case.

"Senator Leftwich and I are preparing for her trial in December and looking forward to her being exonerated," Robert McCampbell, Leftwich's attorney, told News 9.
