Oklahoma County district attorney taking over Epic probe

The Associated Press - February 5, 2022 7:52 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater is taking over a nearly nine-year investigation into Epic Charter Schools. Attorney General John O’Connor announced on Friday that he was returning the probe to Prater.

The D.A. and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation had been probing the charter school and its co-founders since 2013. The A.G.’s office began working the case with the OSBI in 2020, and last week the OSBI announced it had wrapped up its work. Prater will now resume leading the investigation and determine if criminal charges are warranted.

An Epic spokeswoman says school officials have been cooperating with investigators.
