OKLAHOMA CITY - A key prosecution witness in the bribery case against former state Senate leader Mike Morgan will not spend any time in prison for cheating a bank.
Sam Crosby will have to pay $1,329,362 in restitution to Legacy Bank in Elk City.
Crosby, a Carney rancher, pleaded guilty in 2010 to making a false statement about cattle purchases to the bank to influence a loan. His sentencing was put off until after his testimony last February at Morgan's trial in federal court in Oklahoma City.
Last week, U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange sentenced Crosby, 71, to six months on home detention and ordered him to make the restitution to the bank.
