SHAWNEE, Okla. -- A longtime Shawnee attorney pleaded no contest to 10 felony and misdemeanor charges of molesting teenage boys he had represented. 

Gary Jay pleaded guilty to three counts of lewd molestation; three counts of drug possession; two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count each of indecent exposure and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Jay was arrested in January 2007 after one of the teenagers gave police an audio recording of a conversation in which Jay propositioned him for sex. 

Court documents said police found marijuana, cocaine and drug paraphernalia in Jay's apartment.

Jay currently remains free on $250,000 bond with sentencing set for March 28th.
