Ala AG Stepping Aside from Grand Jury Probe

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says he is stepping aside from an investigation his office is conducting in Lee County.

Reports say he has recused himself from the special grand jury that's being seated in the east Alabama city of Opelika.

Strange won't say why he is distancing himself from the investigation, and he declined comment on the probe.

Records show the review is being handled by an assistant to Strange who typically is involved in cases involving public corruption.

The attorney general's office usually uses a grand jury in an official's home county to do an investigation, but it's not clear who or what might be under review in Lee County.
