MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley is asking a federal judge not to make him report to prison next week.

Gilley is seeking another delay because of unspecified medical problems. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson gave Gilley permission on Monday to file his latest request in private. The judge did not immediately rule on the request.

Gilley pleaded guilty to offering bribes to legislators and was originally supposed to report to prison Aug. 27 to serve six years and eight months. He got his report date delayed until Sept. 24 to allow him to have surgery. That got pushed to Oct. 9 and then to Nov. 5 to allow time for recovery. Now he's saying his medical status requires another extension.
