Federal hearing set for Country Crossing owner

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - By Alan Collins

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Federal prosecutors want Ronald Gilley's bond revoked. Gilley owns Country Crossing in Dothan.

Gilley was arrested with several others last year. They're all charged in a case involving a conspiracy to pass an electronic bingo bill in Alabama.

Prosecutors say Gilley broke the law by attempting to bribe lobbyist Jarrod Massey to withhold part of his testimony.

Massey has plead guilty in the matter.

A hearing is set for Wednesday, Jan. 12 in reaction to the prosectution's request. It will be held in the Montgomery federal courthouse and will determine whether or not Gilley's bond will be revoked.

Gilley's attorney Doug Jones emphatically denies any wrongdoing. Gilley is currently free on a $500,000 bond.
