MONTGOMERY – Three Wiregrass residents charged with the kidnapping of three small children, prompting an Amber Alert in May, are set to stand trial in Dothan in November.

 

Melissa Lynn McGee, 36, Westly Rogers, 24, and Joshua Gilley, 25, were arraigned Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping, kidnapping and carjacking. The three pleaded not guilty in front of Magistrate Judge Susan Russ Walker at the Frank M. Johnson Federal Courthouse in Montgomery.

 

According to a federal complaint, McGee is accused of masterminding a plan to lure a couple to the Wiregrass for the purpose of abducting their children (ages 2, 1 ½ and 2 ½ months). The complaint states Rogers confessed and said the plot was conceived by McGee, who wanted to take the children because she claimed they were being abused and wanted to deliver at least one of them to its biological father in Slocomb.

12:15 p.m.– Lobbyist Jarrod Massey testified Tuesday former Rep. Terry Spicer of Elba provided “some type of assistance” in helping Massey’s firm land 14 or 15 lobbying contracts.

McGregor attorney Bobby Segall asked Massey about a series of contracts obtained by Massey’s firm. Massey testified Spicer “made calls and helped set up meetings” to land several contracts. Massey earlier testified he made monthly cash payments of between $1,500 and $3,000 to Spicer between 2001 and 2008.

Segall: “Would you agree that you had a member of the Alabama Legislature on your own personal retainer?”

Massey: “I don’t agree with the characterization. I did pay Mr. Spicer. I did bribe Mr. Spicer.”

Massey lost his composure on the stand after Segall repeatedly asked him about his efforts to hide the payments to Spicer by failing to file a 1099 form with the IRS.

“Sir, I bribed the man! I was trying to hide the payments. I bribed him. I bribed him. I did not file a 1099, I was bribing the man!”

Massey said it was difficult to separate Spicer’s actions during the time he was receiving the payments from Spicer. Massey said that some of Spicer’s acts in helping Massey land lobbying contracts were legal, beneficial to his district and similar to what other legislators did. He also said some of Spicer’s acts were not appropriate

Lobbyist testifies of bribes

MONTGOMERY – A casino lobbyist testified Monday that it cost $25,000 to save Sen. Harri Anne Smith from a “bad political move.”

Jarrod Massey, who was the lobbyist for Country Crossing in 2008, said Smith sought his help after she wanted her bingo bill withdrawn from the Senate Tourism Committee, where it had been assigned. Smith’s bill, introduced in early April of 2008, would have defined bingo in Houston County as a game played on paper cards if voted on and passed in a referendum. Less than two weeks after introducing the bill, Smith sought to have the bill withdrawn. Massey said Smith approached him and asked him to speak to the chairman of the Senate Tourism Committee, where the bill had been assigned.

On the morning of Saturday, July 9th, Officers with the Enterprise Police Department responded to a one vehicle traffic accident in the 300 block of Geneva Highway.

Witnesses advised that the driver of the 1996 Dodge Dakota had fled the scene on foot after leaving the roadway and striking a tree.
