OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- One Oklahoma County employee has resigned and another plans to retire after an investigation into the misuse of county computers and misconduct allegations.

County commissioners have voted to accept the resignation of interim Information Systems Director Alana Baker.

The investigation -- led by Oklahoma County sheriff John Whetsel and Human Resources Director Dan Matthews -- centers around allegations of misuse of the county computers and misconduct in the hiring of an information systems director.

Commissioners spent nearly two hours discussing the allegations with the district attorney's office, Whetsel and Assessor Leonard Sullivan.

Sullivan says one of his employees also was involved in the investigation, but he declined to release the name.

Whetsel says it will be up to the district attorney's office to determine if the allegations are criminal.
