MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The casino owner who last week pleaded guilty to charges of offering millions of dollars in bribes to legislators was released from jail Tuesday morning and will be allowed to spend time with his family before his November sentencing.

Ronnie Gilley, developer of Country Crossing, walked out of the Montgomery City Jail with his wife, Diedre, and attorney David Harrison shortly after 11am Tuesday.

Gilley said that his guilty plea was probably the best thing that's ever happened to him, and it saved his soul.

He could receive up to 20 years when he's sentenced on Nov. 15. He pleaded guilty last week and U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled that he could be released under conditions his attorneys agreed to, including home detention and electronic monitoring.

Gilley is allowed to go to church, to visit his doctors and to see his lawyers, but he will not be able to attend social functions such as Bama Jams, a large music venue, which he helped develop.

A federal magistrate released him after a hearing Tuesday.

Gilley is among a dozen people charged with buying and selling votes on pro-gambling legislation. He acknowledged in his plea agreement that he offered millions in bribed to legislators in exchange for voting to allow his electronic bingo casino to remain open.
