Grand jury indicts Jay Odom, adds perjury charge for Ray Sansom
State Attorney Willie Meggs said the principal theory of law was applied to charge Odom with official misconduct. "We charged him with being a principal to the acts of an official." In other words, Sansom would have no reason to seek money for an airport building had Odom not pushed for one, according to the indictment. A profile of Odom is here.
