P&P Board Rejects Ultimatum (Feb 01, 2013)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An attorney for a member of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board says all five board members are rejecting a prosecutor's ultimatum that they resign or face possible misdemeanor charges for alleged violations of the state Open Meeting Act.

Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater has been investigating the board. In August, Prater accused the five of violating the Open Meeting Act by operating a secret parole docket and granting early parole to certain state prison inmates, including some who were not eligible for it.

Prater gave the board until Frday afternoon to resign. But defense attorney John Coyle, who represents board member Richard Dugger, said Friday that Dugger and the other board members believe they have done nothing wrong.

Prater did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
