A court hearing for two former Oklahoma lawmakers charged with bribery has been postponed.

Former Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore and former Sen. Debbe Leftwich of Oklahoma City were scheduled to be in Oklahoma County District Court Wednesday to be formally bound over for trial. But an online court docket says the hearing has been postponed until Feb. 22.

Prosecutors say Terrill, a Republican, offered Leftwich, a Democrat, an $80,000-a-year job at the state Medical Examiner's Office in 2010 in exchange for Leftwich's promise not to seek re-election so a Republican member of the House could run for the seat.

Terrill was chairman of a House subcommittee responsible for the agency's budget at the time. Officials testified they felt pressured to hire Leftwich although they felt she was not qualified.
