OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Plans to unseal an Oklahoma multicounty grand jury indictment have been postponed.
Oklahoma County District Judge Glenn Jones was scheduled to unseal the indictment Monday. But Diane Clay, spokeswoman for Attorney General Scott Pruitt, says unsealing has been postponed until Thursday.
The indictment is one of two handed up by the multicounty grand jury last week following a three-day investigation. The second sealed indictment will be unsealed on Tuesday in Pittsburg County.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A federal jury has convicted a former leader of the Oklahoma Senate on a single bribery count and cleared him on 32 other charges. A co-defendant was cleared of all wrongdoing. Former Senate President Pro Tem Mike Morgan was convicted of bribery for his actions involving a nursing home bill, and the panel said it couldn't reach a decision on 28 other counts — one of extortion and 27 of mail fraud. Lawyer N. Martin Stringer was cleared of all 29 counts he faced.
