OKLAHOMA CITY -- A judge facing more than two dozen felony counts has reportedly gone on paid administrative leave.

A source told News 9 Tammy Bass-Lesure has stepped down. She reportedly took action herself so a council would not force her to step down without pay.

Bass-Lesure and her husband Karlos were charged with 36 felony counts for taking money from the state to care for two foster children that did not live with them. They allegedly gave the twins to the sister of the judge's bailiff.
