Okla. AG Names Miller To Capital Litigation Board

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorney General Scott Pruitt has appointed Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Miller to the board of directors of the Association of Government Attorneys in Capital Litigation.

Miller is chief of the office's Criminal Appeals Unit. Pruitt said Wednesday that her knowledge of criminal law and professionalism will serve the association well.

The Criminal Appeals Unit handles all criminal appeals and other appellate petitions in state and federal courts. Miller has argued numerous cases before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Miller also has represented the state before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The organization provides information on capital punishment cases, appeals and enforcement of judgments and opinions in accordance with the law. The association also conducts regular meetings and seminars for education and training.
