Alabama Casino Developer Under Home Confinement

Montgomery, AL – Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley is under home confinement while awaiting a hearing on federal prosecutors' claims that he tried to bribe a co-defendant who pleaded guilty in Alabama's gambling corruption case.

Gilley's attorney, Doug Jones, said Thursday the developer must remain in his home except for medical, religious and legal trips. Gilley can conduct his business, but he must keep a log of phone calls.

U.S. District Judge Terry Moorer imposed the new restrictions after he granted Gilley's request to delay his bond revocation hearing from Wednesday to Jan. 31. Jones says such restrictions are normal after a delay.

Prosecutors says Gilley tried to bribe former Country Crossing lobbyist Jarrod Massey, who pleaded guilty and agreed to help prosecutors. Jones says no such bribe occurred.
