OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury will soon be getting back to work.

The state's 14th multicounty grand jury was seated this week and will meet for the first time in February.

An order filed in Oklahoma County District Court on Friday sets the grand jury's schedule through April. The order says the grand jury will meet Feb. 25-27 and then again between March 26 and 28. The grand jury also will meet on April 16, 17 and 18.

The grand jury is administered by Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt's office and meets at the attorney general's office in Oklahoma City. The grand jury investigates criminal matters in all 77 counties, assisting local law enforcement and handling matters of state interest.

The grand jury meets privately. Its investigations are not public.
