Judge Crawford---Out

Tulsa, OK – Tulsa council votes against judge

In a special session of the Tulsa City Council, its members decided not to reappointed a municipal judge facing complaints of sexual harassment and nepotism.

Callers to an ethics hot line complained that Presiding Judge Dan Crawford asked a female employee about her underwear and allowed his daughter to work in his courtroom on a paid internship.

Crawford's two-year term is due to expire at the end of the month.

The City Council is in charge of hiring and firing municipal judges.
