Final e-bingo hearing should decide wiretaps' fate

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Wednesday is expected to be the third and final day of hearings in the bingo bribery case.

Prosecutors want to use thousands of phone calls recorded by the FBI over 37 days in their case against ten lawmakers, lobbyists, and bingo casino owners. The defendants claimed agents listened to calls they should not have.

On Tuesday in court, an agent testified that they first looked into connections between Victoryland owner Milton McGregor and former Attorney General Troy King in 2004. King has not been indicted or accused of any wrongdoing.
