MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge has postponed a hearing Wednesday on prosecutors' claim that Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley tried to bribe his former lobbyist, Jarrod Massey, to keep him from providing information.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Terry Moorer said Tuesday he will set another hearing date later. Defense attorney Doug Jones sought the delay because he said icy weather has kept him from meeting with his client to prepare for Wednesday's hearing.
Prosecutors say Gilley tried to bribe his former lobbyist before Massey pleaded guilty in Alabama's gambling corruption case. They want Gilley's bond revoked. Gilley's attorney says the developer has never tried to bribe anyone.
