LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska says state prison officials may have misled authorities by indicating that four execution drugs obtained by the state were intended for medical purposes.

The organization sent a letter Monday to the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency, saying the state Department of Corrections and the State Penitentiary appeared to have violated federal controlled substances laws by using its DEA registrations to obtain the drugs.
