OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A floor plan of the Oklahoma County jail has been removed from the website of an Oklahoma county commissioner.

District Attorney David Prater says presence of the floor plan on District Two Commissioner Brent Rinehart's site was a ``security breach.''

Rinehart says he saw no problem posting the floor plan because it's a public record that was presented to the commission during an open meeting.

Prater says the issue isn't about open records or Rinehart's right to post the document. He says the issue is security in light of a recent near-successful jail break.

And Sheriff John Whetsel says the public and law officers are at risk because the plans could guide people in assisting or directing escapes from the jail.
