Ala. gambling trial jury on day 4 of deliberations

The jury is Alabama's gambling corruption trial has begun its fourth day of deliberations.

The panel resumed deliberations at 8 a.m. Monday. The jury deliberated two hours Friday afternoon, seven hours Saturday and four hours Sunday afternoon.

Some defense lawyers say they expect long deliberations because the case involves nine defendants and a lengthy indictment with 37 counts.

The sequestered jury consists of 11 women and one man, who is serving as the jury foreman.

The two-month-long case involves casino owner Milton McGregor, 2 of his lobbyists, four current and former state senators, a casino spokesman, and a former legislative bill writer.

They are accused of buying and selling votes on pro-gambling legislation.
