MUSKOGEE - Men accused of murder, rape and child abuse are among several whose trials have been delayed because of an eavesdropping investigation at the Muskogee County District Attorney's Office.
No evidence has surfaced that District Attorney Larry Moore or his staff listened in on conversations between defense attorneys and their clients, but the potential for such activity before and after court hearings has roused the attention of Muskogee County's district judges and bar association.
Moore asked the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to look into the matter. He did not return telephone messages left at his office by The Oklahoman.
District Judge Mike Norman said Thursday that "I heard rumors that people are being listened to in courtrooms and in the courthouse, and there just got to be too many rumors."
