A federal prosecutor has told the jury in Alabama's gambling corruption trial that the conspiracy started when VictoryLand casino owner Milton McGregor agreed to provide $5 million to Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley to try to pass gambling legislation.
Prosecutor Steve Feaga told the jury Friday that McGregor needed more votes to pass the gambling bill in the state Senate and that's why Gilley pleaded guilty to offering money to senators for their votes.
Feaga's closing argument is the last word from attorneys in the trial of McGregor and eight other defendants. The jury will begin deliberations Friday afternoon. The jury is sequestered and will deliberate through the weekend, if necessary.
JUDGE INTERUPTS CLOSING ARGUMENTS
The judge in Alabama's gambling corruption trial has chastised defense attorneys for continually raising objections during the prosecution's closing arguments.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson sent the jury out of the courtroom briefly Friday morning and told defense attorneys that he was tired of hearing their objections every five seconds. The judge said it appeared the defense might have a strategy to break up the prosecution's arguments.
An attorney for Democratic Sen. Quinton Ross of Montgomery, Mark Englehart, said there was no strategy, but defense attorneys were objecting because prosecutor Steve Feaga kept mischaracterizing the evidence.
The jury will begin deliberations Friday afternoon.
