Gilley Still In Jail

A federal judge March 10 denied County Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley’s request to be let out of jail pending his June trial on charges of obstruction of justice and bribing a lobbyist in an Alabama gambling corruption probe.

Court papers filed Jan. 6 claim Gilley made contact with gambling lobbyist Jarrod Massey and “did knowingly offer money or a thing of value” allegedly to influence Massey’s testimony during the trial.

Massey pleaded guilty Dec. 20 to one count of conspiracy and five counts of bribery stemming from his confession that he bribed members of the Alabama Legislature to get favorable votes for electronic bingo.
