Former Fort Gibson town attorney investigated

FORT GIBSON, Apr 14, 2011 (Muskogee Phoenix - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Police confirmed reports Thursday about an ongoing internal investigation targeting the town's former attorney.

Donald Lewis tendered his letter of resignation Monday afternoon. Law enforcers launched their investigation of Lewis earlier that day.

"On April 10, I became aware of the alleged misconduct," said Interim Police Chief Brandon Combs. "I began an internal investigation of those allegations on April 11." Citing concerns about confidentiality and the ongoing investigation, Combs declined to give specifics about the nature of the allegations.

According to Kathy Carson, the town administrator, Lewis has been under contract as the Fort Gibson town attorney since January 2007. Carson said Thursday she knows nothing about the investigation or alleged misconduct.

It was Carson who told town trustees about Lewis' resignation, which, according to the letter, was effective immediately.

Calls to Lewis' Fort Gibson and Tulsa offices went unanswered. No response was received to an email sent to an address Lewis listed on his information on file with the Oklahoma Bar Association.

Muskogee County District Attorney Larry Moore said he had heard of Lewis' resignation.

"I do not have any reports that have come into this office," Moore said Thursday. "So at this time, I cannot comment on anything." Reach D.E. Smoot at (918) 684-2901 or dsmoot @muskogeephoenix.com.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
