Prosecutors oppose ex-Okla. sen. contacting jurors

NewsOn6.com on April 3, 2012 released the following:

“OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Federal prosecutors are opposing a request by the former leader of the Oklahoma Senate to contact jurors who found him guilty of bribery.

Prosecutors filed a brief in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City Tuesday opposing the request by attorneys for former Senate President Pro Tem Mike Morgan. Morgan was convicted of bribery on March 5 by a jury that found him not guilty of related extortion and mail fraud counts.

Defense attorneys say they have received information from 2 of the 12 jurors indicating deliberations were contentious and that some legal instructions were disregarded.

But prosecutors say defense lawyers were against looking into the matters during deliberations and have waived any right to pursue them now.

Defense attorneys have also asked a federal judge to acquit Morgan of bribery.”
