  OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury has rescheduled its meeting scheduled for this month. The grand jury was to meet for three days beginning Nov. 12. But an order signed by Oklahoma County District Judge Barbara Swinton on Tuesday reset the meeting for Dec. 10-12. The state's multicounty grand jury has jurisdiction to investigate criminal matters in all 77 counties. Grand jurors usually meet each month to hear testimony for two or three days. The proceedings and matters under investigation are closed to the public. Last month, Attorney General Scott Pruitt directed the grand jury to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by officials in Rogers County. Officials say the investigation will include topics in a grand jury petition that was signed by more than 8,000 Rogers County residents.
