Alabama Casino Developer Gets Prison Delay

Nov 3, 2012

A federal judge has approved another delay two-week delay for Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley to report to prison.

A federal judge has given Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley another two-week delay in reporting to prison.

Gilley was supposed to report to federal prison on Monday. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson has granted Gilley's request to delay that until Nov. 19. The delay will allow the Enterprise businessman more time to recover from a complication from an unspecified surgery. It is the fourth delay granted to Gilley.

He was originally scheduled to report to prison Aug. 27 for offering bribes to legislators to support pro-gambling legislation. He has received delays to allow him to pay for his surgery and recovery rather than the federal Bureau of Prisons paying for it.

Gilley faces a sentence of six years and eight months.
