Grand Jury Continues Probing the Tulsa Sheriff's Office

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Grand jurors investigating allegations of wrongdoing in an Oklahoma sheriff's office expected to hear more testimony after they reconvened for a fourth day.

Aside from jurors shuffling into a side courtroom around 8:15 a.m. Thursday, potential witnesses couldn't readily be seen waiting to testify as they were last week.

The sheriff and two sheriff's executives are not expected to appear Thursday.

A sheriff's spokesman said late Wednesday that Sheriff Stanley Glanz, Undersheriff Richard Weigel and Chief Deputy Michelle Robinette have yet to be subpoenaed.

The grand jury is investigating whether Glanz neglected his duties and whether reserve deputies who gave gifts to the agency were given special treatment.

The grand jury was empaneled after reserve deputy and close Glanz friend Robert Bates fatally shot an unarmed man in April.
