OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A former state representative who is a regent for the Regional University System of Oklahoma has been indicted for embezzlement.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt said Thursday that former Rep. Terry Matlock of Garvin was indicted on 11 counts of embezzling from Choctaw Electric Cooperative and one count of engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses.

The indictment alleges Matlock — while CEO of the co-op — used employees to work on his property and used the co-op's credit card for more than $70,000 in personal expenses.

A message left at a phone number listed for Matlock wasn't immediately returned.

Matlock served as a Democrat in the House from 1990-2002, when he went to work for the co-op. He was fired in 2014 as the investigation began into his purchases and use of employees.
