DA files motion to dismiss Grand Jury



“If there is nothing to hide, then let’s get on with it,” Walton said. “If there is nothing to hide, why continue to waste resources and the court’s time to prevent it.”
Since the grand jury signatures have been submitted for certification, Wohlgemuth has filed several motions in the proceeding each challenging the legality or authority of the either the petition, petitioners or court.
Wohlgemuth claims “the case in not about the propriety of grand juries, or whether or not investigations are justified,” and states the document circulated by the “Sponsors” is “truly a sham.”
The attorney claims the petitioners filed the documents with the intent of harming the officials named therein by subjecting them to criminal investigation and public harassment calling it an attempted “lynching” without due process.
Wohlgemuth’s document further attacks the petition, petitioners and Claremore Police Detective John Singer individually.
A hearing in the case is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday in District 3 Court Room on the fourth floor of the Rogers County Courthouse. 
Judge Sellers should decide on Wohlgemuth’s motion and if the grand jury should be convened at that time.
