The office of Attorney General Alan Wilson has filed a notice of appeal and a motion to expedite that appeal with the South Carolina Supreme Court.
Exactly one week prior, Circuit Judge Casey Manning stunned observers by ordering Wilson to end a state grand jury investigation into complaints of public corruption by powerful House Speaker Bobby Harrell.
In so doing, Manning appears to have granted legislators immunity from prosecution by the attorney general.
Wilson responded to the ruling with the promise of an appeal and vowed to continue the investigation, saying only the state Supreme Court has the authority to shut down a state grand jury.
Wilson’s spokesman Mark Powell confirmed the filings Monday afternoon.
The grand jury was looking into whether Harrell, a Charleston Republican, had abused his authority for personal gain and diverted campaign funds for his personal use.
