Oklahoma’s multicounty grand jury reconvenes

Special to The Sun

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

Grand jurors will meet Tuesday through Thursday at the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, 313 N.E. 21st St., Oklahoma City.  

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 two to three days.

Proceedings are closed to the public.

In August, the 13th Oklahoma Multicounty Grand Jury concluded with 25 indictments charging a total of 31 individuals, and was assisted by 113 state and local law enforcement agencies.
