MUSKOGEE — The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office says there's no evidence that prosecutors in Muskogee County eavesdropped on private conversations between defense attorneys and their clients.

A local newspaper reports that the investigation began after local attorneys learned that the district attorney's office had access to two laptops that were patched into security cameras at the courthouse. The attorneys said they feared that access could have allowed prosecutors to listen in on conversations between defense attorneys and their clients.

The attorney general's office says there was no evidence of the district attorney's office using the laptops to observe or record any attorney-client conversations. The attorney general's office says it will not pursue the case any further and it won't be presented to the Oklahoma Multicounty Grand Jury.
