OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury returns six sealed indictments but they didn't reveal who was indicted or what the accusations are against them.

The indictments handed up Thursday name seven people. Attorney General Drew Edmondson's office says dates for unsealing the indictments weren't scheduled. Edmondson's office administers the statewide panel.

Among other things, the grand jury has investigated activities involving former state Insurance Commissioner Carroll Fisher.

Fisher resigned after being impeached by the Oklahoma House and is set to go on trial February 6th on a wide range of felony charges.

Three of the grand jury indictments will be unsealed in Oklahoma County, two in Wagoner County and one in Cherokee County.

The grand jury is scheduled to reconvene on February 21st.
