TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A former Broken Arrow school board president admits he made an obscene phone call to a woman working at a mall store. Edward C. Koepsel, 69, faces a possible three-year sentence after pleading guilty to the felony charge Wednesday.

In a document supporting the plea, Koepsel indicated he made several calls to an Eastland Mall business "asking the girls working there for sex and making obscene comments to them." Koepsel resigned from the school board after his arrest in August.

The arrest came after police set up surveillance at a payphone that had been linked to previous obscene and harassing phone calls. Tulsa Associate District Judge Bill Beasley scheduled Koepsel's sentencing for Jan. 18.
