BingoGate: Gilley to plead guilty?

image Via a Tweet from Valorie Lawson, Anchor and reporter for WSFA 12 News in Montgomery, Country Crossings owner Ronald Gilley has decided to plead guilty to charges of bribery and conspiracy.

On air news reports from other media outlets have confirmed that Gilley’s attorneys filed court documents late this afternoon, stating that he will plead guilty and cooperate with federal prosecutors.

Gilley, along with fellow casino owner Milton McGregor, several lobbyists and lawmakers, had been charged in a multicount indictment last October, alleging fraud, bribery and conspiracy in connection with a gambling bill making its way through the 2010 Alabama legislative session.

I’ll have the court documents and more details in a later post.
