A hearing has been delayed for members of Oklahoma's Pardon and Parole Board facing misdemeanor charges of violating the state's Open Meeting Act.

The board's five members were due in court Thursday, but that hearing was postponed until June 27.

Each of the members — chairman Marc Dreyer, of Tulsa; vice chairman David Moore, of Edmond; Currie Ballard, of Langston; Richard L. Dugger, of Oklahoma City; and Lynnell Harkins, of Moore — have pleaded not guilty.

District Attorney David Prater alleges the board granted early parole to some ineligible state prison inmates and did not identify the inmates or the action they planned to consider on meeting agendas in advance.
