Local Paper Alleges Attorney General's Office Investigated

Montgomery, Alabama –

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Former employees of Alabama Attorney
General Troy King have been called to testify before a federal
grand jury, two newspapers report.
The Montgomery Independent newspaper reported Tuesday that seven
witnesses were called last week to testify before the grand jury in
Montgomery. The Independent cited sign-in logs at the courthouse
and observation of people entering and leaving the grand jury room,
and identified the witnesses as former employees of the attorney
general's office.
An aide to King, Chris Bence, said Tuesday that King has not
been notified about the investigation.
The Birmingham News reported that U.S. Attorney Alice Martin of
Birmingham attended all three grand jury sessions. Martin declined
to comment when contacted by The Associated Press.
