Three more people have been freed from prison or had cases dismissed, charges reduced or granted new trials as part of a police corruption probe, bringing the total to 30 people whose cases have been affected, a Tulsa World investigation shows.

The cases are related to a federal investigation of police misconduct involving Tulsa police officers and a federal agent, records show.

U.S. Attorney Jane W. Duke from the Eastern District of Arkansas is leading the grand jury investigation of allegations that police have stolen drugs and money, falsified search warrants, planted evidence and lied under oath.

Five current and former police officers were indicted July 20 in U.S. District Court on various criminal counts. Meanwhile, a former federal agent and former police officer have pleaded guilty in the federal investigation and are cooperating with Duke’s office.
