OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Supreme Court has reinstated a prominent Oklahoma City criminal defense attorney it suspended from practice after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of obstructing a police officer.
The court handed down the decision Tuesday in the case of David Ogle, who was suspended in August 2012.
Ogle had pleaded guilty to trying to bribe an Edmond police officer to skip a driver's license revocation hearing to keep his client from losing his license for drunken driving. The case against Ogle has since been dismissed.
In a statement, Ogle expressed thanks to the court "for seeing my value in the legal community."
Ogle has represented several well-known clients including former state Senate President Pro Tem Mike Morgan, who was convicted in March 2012 on a federal bribery charge.
