MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The first person to plead guilty in Alabama's gambling corruption investigation is seeking probation, but federal prosecutors are recommending two years in prison.
Former Country Crossing casino lobbyist Jennifer Pouncy pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2010. She is scheduled for sentencing Wednesday in Montgomery.
Her attorney, Tommy Spina, has filed court papers stressing her early cooperation with investigators and her testimony at two trials. He also said nothing would be served by taking the 36-year-old woman away from her husband and young son.
Assistant Attorney General Lanny Bruer filed court papers Monday saying Pouncy helped get the guilty pleas of two others, but she still deserves prison time because she was motivated by greed to offer bribes to legislators to support pro-gambling legislation.
