The five members of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board have been offered a chance to resign to avoid being charged with misdemeanor violations of the Open Meeting Act.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater contends the Pardon and Parole Board violated the law dozens of times.
“I’m not going anywhere,” said one board member, Currie Ballard. “Until Christ Jesus calls me home, I’ll be on the Pardon and Parole Board. We have not committed a crime.”
