Arguments to begin over e-bingo wiretaps

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A federal judge will hear arguments on Monday over whether to block wire taps from being used in the so-called bribes for bingo trial.

The defendants are trying to stop prosecutors from using recorded phones calls. They include recordings of indicted casino owners Milton McGregor and Ronnie Gilley as well as casino lobbyist Jarrod Massey.
Massey has pleaded guilty and is cooperating with prosecutors.

The trial is tentatively set to begin June 6th.
