Former State Senator Ralph Shortey appeared at the Cleveland County Court House Friday afternoon for his arraignment on child prostitution charges.
At the hearing, a judge ordered Shortey to return to court April 11 at 1 pm.
Shortey resigned from his state Senate seat Wednesday.
The FBI also confirmed it is investigating Ralph Shortey and agents have served a search warrant at his home.
Moore police arrested Shortey two weeks ago after they say he was found in a motel room with a teenage boy.
