A.M. UPDATE: State Attorney General's Office declines to pursue spying case against Muskogee County District Attorney's Office

No case will be pursued against the local district attorney’s office after its employees were accused of potentially eavesdropping on private conversations.

Allegations were made last year that the DA’s office could have spied on private conversations between attorneys and their clients through use of laptops connected to courthouse surveillance cameras. District Attorney Larry Moore admitted to having been given laptops which had surveillance access, but denied any wrong doing.

The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office said in a written statement that it would not “be pursuing this case as a criminal investigation, nor will it be presenting it to the Multicounty Grand Jury.”
