Attorney general under investigation again

Posted by: Sherri Burnett-James - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -  A special grand jury is investigating Attorney General Troy King's office once again. The federal grand jury has been meeting off and on in Montgomery for nearly a year.

King's Chief of Staff Chris Bence confirmed his appearance before the panel.

Prosecutors asked Bence not to discuss his testimony, because federal law prohibits prosecutors from commenting on what the investigation is about.

In May 2009, King was the target of a federal grand jury investigation concerning alleged unethical behavior.
