Free Michael Behenna Petition Nears 20,000 Names

A petition seeking a new trial for imprisoned Army Airborne 1st Lt. Michael Behenna of Edmond has attracted almost 20,000 signatures.

Behenna, son of federal prosecutor Vicki Behenna and FBI analyst Scott Behenna, retired OSBI agent, is serving time in the death of an al-Qaida operative in Iraq.
