Former Oklahoma County District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure took issue when a television reporter called her by her first name following a court hearing last week. “Did you call me Tammy?” she snapped.
The indignation is comical, especially given the reason why Bass-LeSure was leaving the courtroom. She and her husband had just pleaded guilty to adoption fraud. Bass-LeSure admitted to two felony counts of obtaining public assistance by false representation. Her husband, Karlos Bass-LeSure, pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining public assistance and trying to obtain public assistance, both felonies.
