OKLAHOMA CITY (CN) — The Oklahoma state senator charged last week with felony child prostitution resigned Wednesday, though Ralph Shortey’s exit will not change the balance in the Republican-dominated state Senate.

Ralph Shortey, R-Oklahoma City, was arrested last week and charged with hiring a 17-year-old boy for sex after meeting him on Craigslist.

Police charged the 35-year-old married father of four with engaging in child prostitution, engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church, and transporting a minor for prostitution — all felonies.

The Senate stripped him of his authority a week after police found him in the suburb of Moore on March 9 with a teenager at a hotel.
Shortey’s bail was set at $100,000. He is to appear at an initial court hearing Friday.

“I appreciate the service the men and women of the Oklahoma Senate provide, and I recognize the need for the business of the Senate to proceed without distraction for the remainder of the legislative session,” Shortey wrote in his March 22 resignation letter.
