John Tyson Responds to Gilley's Conference

The leader of the Gov. Riley’s task force on illegal gambling responded to Ronnie Gilley's statements, saying it's been his experience that it isn't a good idea for those who break the law to decide the prosecution's law enforcement status.

“A Houston County judge, in fact, found probable cause to believe that the machines in Mr. Gilley's facility did in fact break the law of the state of Alabama and issued, actually issued a search warrant, but Mr. Gilley and them sought an illegal injunction, stopped us and what's interesting to me is he could have had his day in court way back when,” John Tyson said.

Tyson went on to say that if Gillley was offering to open the facility and allow state law enforcement agencies to inspect the machines, he'd be happy to "take him up on it and take the machines."
