(TULSA, Okla.) July 20 - A member of the Creek County District Attorney's Office is on paid leave tonight as the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations looks into child sex abuse charges.
The man is a high level employee in the District Attorney's office, however he does not directly prosecute cases.
Because the employee has not been arrested or charged, FOX23 news is not reporting his name or specific job position. We did find out that the employee himself asked to be placed on leave to minimize disruption to the office. He is still receiving a paycheck while the investigation continues.
