A federal judge is expected to spend most of Wednesday considering motions to throw out charges against nine defendants in a federal gambling corruption trial.
Prosecutors on Tuesday rested their case against Macon County casino owner Milton McGregor and eight others as the trial was in its eighth week.
Prosecutors say the defendants conspired to buy and sell votes in the Alabama Legislature on gambling legislation.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson said he would consider the motions to dismiss on Wednesday. Defense attorneys are expected to begin presenting their cases on Thursday.
One defense attorney, Jim Parkman, told Thompson Tuesday that his client, state Sen. Harri Anne Smith, was considering testifying.
