Long-Time DHS Employee Indicted

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A long-time state Department of Human Services employee has been indicted by the state's multi-county grand jury on 13 counts of perjury. Barbette Hull of Atoka is charged in an indictment unsealed Friday morning in Oklahoma County District Court.

Assistant Attorney General Joel-lyn McCormick says Hull lied to a grand jury investigating allegations of illegal campaign activity by officials at the Kiamichi Technology Center in Atoka.

McCormick says Hull was accused of using her state computer to produce campaign literature and was offered immunity in exchange for testifying truthfully to the grand jury. McCormick says Hull then lied at least 13 times while testifying.

The court entered a not guilty plea on Hull's behalf and she was taken in handcuffs to the Oklahoma County jail for booking.
