BATON ROUGE - A special grand jury looking into a now-canceled $200 million state Medicaid contract has expired, but the attorney general's office says the investigation is ongoing.

Gov. Bobby Jindal's former health secretary Bruce Greenstein has been indicted on nine perjury charges in the case.

Assistant Attorney General David Caldwell said Tuesday his office continues its probe, but will start running into time limits for bringing further charges later this year.

The Jindal administration voided the contract with CNSI in 2013 and has accused Greenstein, a former CNSI vice president, of inappropriate contact with the company throughout the bid process.

Greenstein has been charged with lying during his sworn testimony to a state Senate committee and to the grand jury. He's pleaded not guilty and said he did nothing wrong.
