A federal grand jury will be focused on former Governor Mike Easley again this week.

The grand jury is trying to determine if Easley should face political corruption charges.

The court has also commanded former state Transportation Secretary Lyndo Tippett to testify.

Easley's former top aide Ruffin Poole pleaded guilty last month and is now going to provide potentially damaging testimony about his former boss.
