Victoryland says Alabamians stand "in peril"

Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After listening to John Tyson, head of the governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling, tell the attorney general he wouldn't be taking his advice, attorneys for embattled Victoryland responded to his statements.

This is the full response they issued:

According to Victoryland attorney Mark White, "The position taken by Mr. Tyson today confirms he is determined to create a Constitutional crisis in our state and endanger the life, liberty and property of Alabama's citizens. 

Mr. Tyson and Governor Riley do not believe they are accountable to any law or any person.  Everyone must now ask the question ‘Why are they doing this now?' 

General King today confirmed Mr. Tyson and Governor Riley were turned down by neutral magistrates and judges in Macon and Greene counties because there was no probable cause.  They now seek to declare probable cause themselves and it is clear they are proceeding in bad faith and contrary to law.  They have created civil liability for this State in amounts that defy imagination. 

Every citizen now stands in peril because of their desperate actions."
