AG Investigates Charity

Oklahoma City, OK – Okla. atty. gen. opens probe of Feed the Children

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An Oklahoma assistant attorney general says the attorney general's office is investigating allegations of misuse of funds at the Feed the Children charity.

Assistant Attorney General Julie Bays attended a hearing Friday in a suit filed by Larry Jones, who was fired in November from his job as president of Feed the Children. Attorney General Drew Edmondson had asked in March for permission to intervene in the suit, and Oklahoma County District Judge Patricia Parrish granted Edmondson's request Friday.

Bays said the AG's office investigation will involve scrutiny of the charity's board of directors and of Jones. She said it could end up as a criminal matter.
