OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board members say they are in compliance with most of Gov. Mary Fallin's proposals to improve the board's policies and practices.
The board discussed Fallin's recommendations on Friday. Fallin's office made the suggestions after a prosecutor accused the board of conducting a secret parole docket in violation of the Open Meeting Act.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater accused the board of providing no public notice that it would consider early parole for inmates, including some ineligible for early release.
Board member Richard Dugger says the agency has not conducted secret meetings.
Board members say they already have a commutation docket suggested by the governor's office. But they rejected a recommendation that they have individual email accounts because of the volume of mail they already receive.
