TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Tulsa County Criminal Justice Authority deferred several community jail agreements and is instead discussing legal issues that could end up being decided by a judge.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/1wXwXgB ) that the agreements were pushed back at least a month on Friday following a contentious meeting. Discussion surrounded an agreement specifically for Jenks but involved issues each of the communities, including Tulsa, have raised.

Due to the arguments, the Jenks agreement and other community agreements were deferred until January. Tulsa’s agreement was removed from consideration earlier in the week and has also been pushed back until at least next month.

Jim Orbison, the authority’s attorney, says the legal issues might land several communities - including Tulsa, Jenks, Sand Springs, Glenpool and Owasso - in court against the authority.
