Former Lincoln County Judge Surrenders

Former Lincoln County Associate District Judge Craig S. Key surrendered Thursday and was arraigned in Lincoln County District Court. Key was indicted by Attorney General Scott Pruitt's Multicounty Grand Jury on April 18 on charges of cattle theft and embezzlement.

Key, 47, an attorney and former judge, from Chandler, turned himself in and his bond was set at $10,000. He was ordered to wear an ankle bracelet with GPS tracking, must stay within a 100-mile radius of Chandler, surrender his passport and have no contact with witnesses or codefendants. Key also turned in his license with the Oklahoma Bar Association and resigned as an attorney.

On April 18, Oklahoma's Multicounty Grand Jury indicted Key on seven felony counts. One count of conspiring to commit larceny of domestic animals; one count of larceny of domestic animals; three counts of delivery of a forged note or instrument; and two counts of embezzlement. Two others indicted with Key for cattle theft, Joshua E. Anderson, 36, of Agra and Leslie Bottger, 47, of Agra, also were arraigned on Thursday.

The AG's Multicounty Grand Jury Unit investigated the claims jointly with assistance from agents with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry.

The state's multicounty grand jury investigates criminal matters in all 77 counties, assisting local law enforcement as well as handling matters of state interest.
