The purpose of the special called grand jury has not been publicly disclosed.
DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities are continuing to interview Houston County officials as part of a grand jury investigation, but they haven't disclosed the nature of the probe.
Reports say that current and former Houston County commissioners spent Monday afternoon testifying in front of a special called grand jury at the Houston County Courthouse.
Several commissioners were still present at the courthouse around 4:30 p.m. Monday, when the grand jury concluded for the day. Some commissioners previously acknowledged receiving subpoenas to appear before the grand jury.
