State grand jury reconvenes


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Oklahoma’s multicounty grand jury reconvened Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

The grand jury will meet through Thursday at the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, 313 NE 21. Proceedings are closed to the public.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt requested the multicounty grand jury, which was approved by the Oklahoma Supreme Court in September 2012.

It is led by Assistant Attorney General Megan Tilly, chief of the AG’s Multicounty Grand Jury Unit.

Oklahoma’s multicounty grand jury has jurisdiction to investigate criminal matters in all 77 counties, assisting local law enforcement as well as handling matters of state interest. Each month, grand jurors meet to hear testimony for 2-3 days.  

The 13th multicounty grand jury concluded in August with 25 indictments, charging a total of 31 individuals and was assisted by 113 state and local law enforcement agencies.
