2:05 p.m. – In the days leading up to the Senatepassage of SB380, Ronnie Gilley rode a roller coaster of emotions. One day, Gilley was assured there were enough votes to pass the bill out of the Senate. The next, he was told the votes were not there.

Much of Gilley’s testimony focused on the attempt to secure more votes for SB380. The government played one phone conversation between Gilley and political operative Joe Perkins in which Gilley urged Perkins to deliver an ailing Sen. Wendell Mitchell to the Statehouse for the March 31, 2010 vote. Gilley tellsPerkins that he will commit to aiding Mitchell’s campaign with country music stars Randy Owen, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire and Tracy Lawrence.

“We’re talking more than $500,000,” Gilley tells Perkins.

During another conversation, Gilley calls Milton McGregor and asks his advice on sending country music entertainer Lorrie Morgan to a fundraiser for gubernatorial candidate Ron Sparks.

“Sparks is good for us. There’s no doubt,” McGregor said.

The attorney for Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley said Monday Gilley ‘has everything to lose’ if he gives untruthful testimony at the bingo corruption trial.

Gilley has pleaded guilty to conspiracy, bribery and money laundering in connection with a federal vote-buying investigation in the Alabama Legislature. Since late Thursday, Gilley’s testimony has implicated many of the nine defendants at trial.

Gilley attorney David Harrison said Gilley “is doing exactly what he is supposed to do.”

Ronnie Gilley has a plea agreement that states he has to tell the truth, whether what he says is positive toward the government or negative toward the government,” Harrison said. “If he embellishes anything, then he loses that agreement.

“All of his testimony seems to be corroborated by tapes.”

A traffic stop made by a Holmes County

Sheriff’s Deputy in northern Holmes County

leads to suspected methamphetamine.

 

Deputy Clint Smith was patrolling in northern

Holmes County on State Road 2 when he saw

a Ford pick-up fail to stop at a stop sign.

Deputy Smith conducted a traffic stop and a

subsequent computer check revealed the tag on

the Ford pick-up to be registered to a Dodge.

Deputy Smith made contact with the driver who

identified himself as Nathan Eugene Biddle (43)

of Bonifay.

On June 25, 2011 the Dothan Police Department responded to a firearm assault reported by members of a local hospital where the victim had checked in for treatment.

The victim told police he was walking on Fountain Street when the suspects who were unknown to him ran out of the bushes and began shooting. The victim received a gunshot wound in his left foot.

(Montgomery, Ala.) - Alabama law enforcement agencies reported a 10 percent decrease in the number of overall violent crimes reported in 2010, according to the state’s Crime in Alabama 2010 report release by the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center(ACJIC) today.

A Hartford man received a life prison sentence Wednesday for severely burning a 7-month-old boy in hot water.

Circuit Court Judge Kevin Moulton issued the sentence for 32-year-old Jamie Abrams. A jury convicted Abrams last month of a felony aggravated child abuse charge.

“This has not been easy case for anyone involved, and although you have shown remorse you do have two priors,” Moulton said. “The facts of the case are bad facts. The things that happened to this child can never be corrected by enough sorries.”

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank our local community and media for assistance in identifying a man wanted for indecent exposure. On Sunday, July 19, 2011 the victim, a twelve year old female, was shopping with a guardian at Target. She and another juvenile went to the grocery side of the store where they briefly separated while looking for snacks. The victim stated a white male suddenly appeared at the end of the aisle where she was walking and had his shorts pulled down and shirt raised up exposing his genitals. Employees of Target provided a photograph of the suspect and his vehicle in hopes of identifying the man. Police received numerous phone calls and have now identified and arrested William Daniel McCord.
