OKLAHOMA CITY -

An embattled Oklahoma district judge tendered her resignation Friday afternoon. 

Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure submitted her resignation to Governor Mary Fallin effective March 1, 2012.

Bass-LeSure is accused of giving twins to her bailiff's sister and of lying on adoption records.

She is facing over 30 felony counts of fraud, conspiracy and perjury.

Testimony was interrupted in her preliminary hearing last month so that plea negotiations could be conducted.

Her arraignment has been set for March 2.
