WAGONER COUNTY, Okla. - A judge determined Friday to try a former Wagoner County sheriff on two felony counts.

Former Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert and former Captain Jeff Gragg were both bound over for trial on counts of conspiracy and receiving a bribe.

The charges stemmed from a traffic stop in which the attorney general's office said Gragg and Colbert released a suspected drug dealer in exchange for $10,000.

A grand jury indicted the pair on three felony counts over, but a count of extortion was dropped.
