MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Country Crossing owner Ronnie Gilley said today that he might be returning to the courthouse as a prosecution witness in future trials over electronic bingo in Alabama.

Gilley continued testifying this afternoon in the State House vote-buying case, answering questions from defense lawyers about his cooperation with prosecutors. Gilley indicated his cooperation might not end with this trial.

Gilley testified that he "possibly" will be on the witness stand in other cases. He did not elaborate.

Gilley agreed to cooperate with prosecutors after pleading guilty to bribery, conspiracy and money laundering. Gilley testified that he worked with VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor and others to try to buy votes for a gambling bill before lawmakers last year.

But defense lawyers this afternoon tried to show holes in Gilley's testimony and continued to attack his credibility as a prosecution witness

Day 17, The Bingo Trials

Good Morning! Judge Thompson is hearing objections from the defendants’ attorneys concerning the checks that were entered into evidence yesterday afternoon by the government. This is being done before the jury and witness are called into the courtroom.  They are discussing a chart that the prosecution has made of their evidence. The defendants’ attorneys disagree with the government’s presentation of the checks as contributions.. We are hearing from the fourth defendants attorney. The prosecution says that they are planning on the using the chart even though some of the numbers are understated and some overstated. The will have a corrected chart this afternoon.


The Judge is sustaining the document as it is right now. The Judge said he would hear the objections of the alleged corrected chart when it is presented to the defendants.

8:39 They are having an in camera conference at the request of Mr. McGowan, Milton McGregor’s attorney.

8:52 The attorney’s have returned to the courtroom. When court resumes Mr. McGowan, Milton McGregor’s attorney will begin cross examination of Ronnie Gilley. Today there are more people in the balcony and the Judge Thompson’s courtroom than usual. The general feeling is as the cross-examination of Mr. Gilley gets started there will be a larger crowds. Court normally begins at 9 but today Judge Thompson wanted to begin at 8:30 due to the time that was lost yesterday when the court reporter became sick. Judge Thompson began with the attorneys at 8.


8:58 Judge Thompson has returned to the courtroom. Judge Thompson said that the courtroom did have a diabetic episode. His blood sugar had dropped. Judge Thompson said he did pass out and he assured the jury that this is one trial for which you could not fall asleep and one witness that you would not fall asleep during was Mr. Gilleys, that whether you like it or not his language is rather colorful..Judge Thompson said that often times the court reporter would signal him when he needed to take a break but this time he did pass out..

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.”
