MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Attorney General Troy King says
a federal grand jury investigation of him and his office has ended.
Federal prosecutors say they can't confirm or deny that.
King read a statement Thursday afternoon in Montgomery saying
U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance of Birmingham had informed his attorneys
that her office had closed the matter.
A spokeswoman for Vance says federal law prohibits any comment
about a grand jury. The grand jury had been meeting in Montgomery.
Court officials in Montgomery says they also can't comment.
The grand jury had been reviewing the operation of King's office
and entertainment he received. The panel's activity became public
because King sought state funds to hire attorneys to help prepare
documents sought by investigators.
