Morgan also is accused of taking $250,000 in bribes from a power plant company and $12,000 in bribes from an Edmond assisted-living business. Jurors are to hear testimony about those payments later. Morgan, who is an attorney, contends he was paid for legitimate legal services.
Morgan, 57, of Stillwater, Stringer, 71, of Oklahoma City, and Skeith, 53, of Edmond, were indicted in March. All three have pleaded not guilty.
Morgan, a Democrat, was Senate president pro tem or co-president pro tem from March 2005 until November 2008, according to the indictment.
Walker testified Thursday about his notes for almost three hours even though he said he could not recall his conversations with Skeith.
He specifically said he does not know if notes such as “Morgan — retainer” and “50K,” which is short for $50,000, came from what Skeith told him.
Walker told the jury he was not a part of any plan to bribe Morgan and wouldn't have participated in one. “I had no knowledge of any improper action,” Walker testified.
The judge excused the jury at 12:13 p.m. Thursday so one juror could deal with a problem. Testimony is set to resume at 9 a.m. Friday. The trial is expected to last two to three more weeks.
