Fmr Insurance Commish Sentenced

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former state Insurance Commissioner Carroll
Fisher will spend the next three years in prison for embezzlement
and perjury.

Fisher was sentenced in Oklahoma County District Court today to
one year for embezzling a $1,000 donation to his campaign fund. He was given another two years for perjury for failing to report the donation on his state campaign finance reports and was fined $20,000.

Fisher is now free on a $50,000 appeal bond but must remain in his home except for doctor's or dental visits or to meet with his lawyer. He must also wear a Global Positioning device to monitor his whereabouts.

Fisher said only that he wants to stay at home with his wife and
family.

Fisher was convicted February eighth and still faces other charges including bribery, filing a false income tax return and failure to report charitable contributions.

Trial dates have not been set in those cases.
