Multi-county grand jury investigating Bixby sex assault case recesses until February
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KTUL) -- The multi-county grand jury investigating the Bixby sexual assault allegations has recessed until February.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the grand jury foreman says they heard testimony on several different matters but ran out of time to complete their investigation.
The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office won't comment on what matters the grand jury heard, nor will the Rogers County District Attorney's Office, which is leading the investigation into the alleged sexual assault. Grand jury proceedings are not a matter of public record, but a source close to the investigation confirms testimony was heard Wednesday in the case. Rogers County DA Matt Ballard was also spotted at the AG's office where the grand jury was in session.
Court documents allege members of the football team have admitted to "various levels of participation" in the October sexual assault of a teammate. The assault is alleged to have occurred at the home of then-Superintendent Kyle Wood, who has since resigned amid the controversy.
The grand jury reconvenes Feb. 13 and may summon additional witnesses and request additional evidence.
