Grand jury cancels February session due to winter weather

Randy Cowling


The multicounty grand jury,  charged with investigating accusations of misconduct by Rogers County officials, has canceled its February session in Oklahoma City due to winter weather, according to a statement issued Monday by the state attorney general’s office.
The grand jury was scheduled to reconvene today to hear from more witnesses and gather additional physical evidence through Thursday.
It plans to reconvene again for a three-day session on March 25-27 at the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office in Oklahoma City.
Grand jury proceedings are confidential and it is not known who among the Rogers County officials targeted in the investigation have testified thus far or will be subpoenaed later.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt directed the multicounty grand jury in October 2013 to investigate “multiple allegations of wrongdoing by public officials and others in Rogers County.”
The multicounty or state grand jury has been considering other accusations of public official misconduct around Oklahoma since it was established more than a year-and-a-half ago.
