Oklahoma’s Multicounty Grand Jury to Meet Tuesday

OKLAHOMA CITY – The state’s multicounty grand jury will reconvene Tuesday in Oklahoma City. 

The grand jury will meet Tuesday, Sept. 20, through Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, 313 NE 21.

Led by Assistant Attorney General Charles Rogers, chief of the AG’s Multicounty Grand Jury Unit, the state’s 13th multicounty grand jury has returned five indictments, involving six defendants, in cases filed in Cleveland, Harper, Pittsburg and Oklahoma counties.

The multicounty grand jury was requested by Attorney General Scott Pruitt and approved by the Oklahoma Supreme Court on Jan. 27.

The 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.

The state’s 12th multicounty grand jury concluded in September 2010 with 10 indictments and assisted 145 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

Each month, grand jurors typically meet to hear testimony for two to three days. Testimony before a grand jury is closed to the public.
