Bingo Investigation defendant speaks about his arrest

Montgomery, AL (WSFA) - One of the 11 defendants arrested this week is back on the job at the State House. Ray Crosby has worked in the office that writes the bills for the legislators for 31 years. Now, Crosby's future is uncertain.

Crosby wouldn't talk on camera but described the details of his arrest. He says he was dressed for work when agents arrived between 6 and 6:30 Monday morning. He described the agents as courteous and polite. They took Crosby to the FBI office where he was questioned. Then he was taken to a holding cell in the federal courthouse. Agents placed him in leg irons and handcuffs. He said it was humiliating to hear the noise of the chains as he shuffled into the courtroom.

Crosby says he was shaking so much that another defendant, Senator Harri Anne Smith asked if he was cold. He said "no." She then told him he needed to get angry. After the hearing, he was released on bond and went back at work.

Crosby says he's received tremendous support from republican and democratic lawmakers. He says that's who he works for - the legislators, unless they tell him to work with someone else, and that's what happened in his case.

When asked about the charge that he was paid $3-thousand a month by Milton Mcgregor, Crosby said he couldn't talk about that.
