Multicounty Grand Jury Indicts Restaurant Owner (Jun 20, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury has indicted a restaurant owner on three counts of perjury in connection with its investigation of District Attorney David Prater.

Last week, the grand jury cleared Prater of any wrongdoing. An indictment unsealed Wednesday accuses 41-year-old Wade Starr of three counts of perjury.

Starr owns the restaurant where Prater held a 2006 victory party. The grand jury had investigated allegations that Prater received an illegal campaign donation when a supporter reportedly paid a $12,000 restaurant bill.

Starr pleaded not guilty to all three counts and a judge set bond at $6,000. A court hearing is scheduled for Aug. 22.

Assistant attorney general Charles Rogers had no comment on the indictment, and neither Starr nor his attorney Gary Wood commented on the allegations.
