COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio lawmaker has been indicted on charges of bribery, election falsification and filing a false ethics statement.

A prosecutor says the three felony bribery charges handed down Tuesday against state Rep. W. Carlton Weddington of Columbus are the first against a state lawmaker since 1912.

Weddington was expected to turn himself in later Tuesday.

A message seeking comment was left at Weddingotn's legislative office.
