An attorney for a Republican state senator from Oklahoma City facing felony child prostitution charges says his client plans to resign his seat by Wednesday.

During a heated town hall meeting last month, Shortey suggested a bill that would have changed drug laws (State Question 780 and 781) that were approved by Oklahoma voters last November citing worry about his own children's safety.

The investigation began in the early hours of March 9 when Moore police found Shortey with a 17-year-old boy in a motel room. "We are calling on him to make the right choice for the citizens of Senate District 44, as well the State of Oklahoma, and immediately tender his resignation from our august body".

The FBI conducted a search on Friday of Shortey's Oklahoma City home, FBI spokeswoman Jessica Rice confirmed. "Unfortunately at this time, I can not release more details as this is a sensitive ongoing investigation".
