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.
