Grand Jury to Meet
Oklahoma City, OK – Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury to meet Tuesday
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office says the state's multicounty grand jury will reconvene next week.
The grand jury will meet Tuesday through Thursday at the Attorney General's Office near the State Capitol. Grand jury testimony is closed to the public.
Grand jurors meet to hear testimony for two to three days each month. The panel will not meet in December.
Led by Assistant Attorney General Charles Rogers, the state's 13th multicounty grand jury has returned 13 indictments involving 14 defendants in cases filed in Cleveland, Harper, Pittsburg and Oklahoma counties. The multicounty grand jury has jurisdiction to investigate criminal matters in all 77 counties.
The state's 12th multicounty grand jury concluded in September 2010 with 10 indictments and assisted investigations by 145 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
