TULSA, OK -- Once again, a federal judge has denied bond for two Tulsa police officers jailed on federal charges.

Veteran officers Bill Yelton and Jeff Henderson are accused of a string of charges including drug possession and tampering with witnesses. 

Their attorneys argued that the officers should be released because they have no history of violence and no criminal records. 

The U.S. Attorney argues Yelton and Henderson have tried to intimidate witnesses in the past.

This is the second time they have been denied bond.
