MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A key government witness in Alabama's gambling corruption trial, Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie
Gilley, signed a plea deal providing for a prison sentence of 20 to 27 years.
But he admits to telling people that he expects to be out in less than five because he has helped prosecutors.
Gilley's comments were revealed in recorded phone calls he made in April
while in the Montgomery city jail.
