Ex-senator discusses highly public fall from grace, future
Rick Brinkley’s fall from grace was fast, hard and highly public.
“My life literally imploded in a matter of days,” said Brinkley, 57.
Brinkley in October was released from the federal prison in El Reno after serving 30 months and spending 62 days in a halfway house for embezzling $1.8 million from his former employer, the Better Business Bureau in Tulsa.
Now the former pastor, television producer and state senator is trying to rebuild his life.
